And yet somehow he managed to survive.
A 15.7 mile road trip from Andrews Air Force Base to the White House took the president more than an hour last night as the Washington, D.C. area was hit with its first snow fall of the season. The total cumulation of snow last night was 1 inch.
For Obama and his presidential motorcade, the drive took one hour and fourteen minutes.
“Departing at 7:26 p.m., President Obama’s motorcade made its way slowly from Joint Base Andrews to the White House through the snowy streets of suburban Maryland and Washington, D.C., stopping at most stoplights and easing its way through slow and crowded traffic, often employing sirens and flashing lights,” the White House pool reporter said.
