WASHINGTON -- Winter squeezed the Eastern United States on Monday, bringing snow and promising days of frigid temperatures in the region where too many unwanted, icy records have already been set. Snow began falling in the mid-Atlantic region and the federal government took a snow day -- again. Nasty winds were blowing up the Eastern states and officials warned of hazardous driving conditions. “A late-season winter storm will continue to shift eastward through the Tennessee Valley and the mid-Atlantic today, making for hazardous travel conditions,” the National Weather Service warned.

SOCHI, Russia - After taking a few practice runs down the halfpipe at the Sochi Olympics earlier this week, Hannah Teter had some concerns. To say the least. "I couldn't do any of my tricks," the American snowboarder said. "It was just the worst pipe I'd ever ridden in my life. " Then the crew at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park scrambled to make fixes, smoothing a lumpy bottom and using a mixture of salt and water to harden the walls. "A hundred million times better," Teter said before the women's final on Wednesday night.

Unseasonably warm and dry weather is expected to give way to cooler temperatures and a slight chance of light rain overnight Thursday and into Friday, forecasters say. This week's warmer-than-average weather is expected to be replaced by temperatures in the lower to mid-60s starting Thursday as a low-pressure system moves in, bringing with it cloudy skies and that chance of long-absent rain. Patchy drizzle is possible in some areas in the morning, building to a 20% chance of rain at night, according to the National Weather Service.

WASHINGTON - As brutally cold temperatures continue to blast much of the nation, a propane shortage is driving up heating bills, prompting accusations of price gouging and leading to energy emergencies in more than a dozen states, from Alabama to Michigan. The lack of propane has forced the closing of schools in Tennessee, led to calls for people to turn down their thermostats and given poultry farmers the shivers. "They're worried they might not be able to keep those chickens warm," said Jeff Helms of the Alabama Farmers Federation.
