Ahead of 'Snowmageddon,' White House cancels Friday briefing

By Garance Franke-Ruta
As the Washington area gears up for an anticipated massive snowfall Friday of up to two feet, the White House has canceled the daily press briefing with White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.

Deputy press secretary Bill Burton also weighed in on Twitter about what to call the coming storm -- a subject of some debate online, where the chattering classes have taken to giving District snowstorms clever names. Burton came down on the side of using the same hashtag as for the last big snowstorm, "snowpocalypse."
