66W from Falls Church to Vienna OK at 7, but from Vienna west to 28 snowpacked.

Ramp from 50E to 66W blocked (as of 7:30) by a snowbank left behind by the plows. Several cars stuck there.

Many abandoned cars at 66 and 28, police on the scene arranging tows.

28 N from 66 to Westfields right lane partially blocked. Center lane snowpack.

Apart from all the stuck cars, that's a beautiful view.
