Children sled down Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on February 8, 2010 as the District of Columbia and the mid-Atlantic region recover from a weekend blizzard that droped more than two feet of snow (about 75 cm) on the capital. The Federal Government closed today along with schools and many businesses. AFP PHOTO / Tim SLOAN (Photo credit should read TIM SLOAN/AFP/Getty Images)
