Snow day at Davos
The Swiss? Great at snow.
Washington? Not so much.
So a significant chunk of the U.S. contingent scheduled to be here — where the snow is whisked away and the World Economic Forum laptop bags came equipped with crampons to put on your wingtips —ended up getting snowed in back home. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s flight was canceled — and it took him seven hours to inch his way back from Dulles airport to the Capitol.
World Bank President Bob Zoellick—also snow-bound. As were Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and his wife, Dr. Susan Blumenthal. In Davos, meanwhile, the weather is a positively balmy 3 degrees Celsius. (That’s 37.4 degrees Farenheit.)
