Four to six inches of snow, coupled with record cold temperatures, were enough to shut down much of Bethesda on Tuesday and close schools on Wednesday.
Reader J.D. Mack, who works at Stage 2 A/V Productions on Norfolk Avenue, made it into work Tuesday and took this time-lapse video of snow falling outside his window.
You can see the road pick up snow as the day goes on. But by the 4 p.m. hour, some plowing and car traffic made it easily passable.
