    Think what it's like in DC when they get hit with a snowstorm.  Now, just imagine what it might be like with a really bad blizzard blasting the city - high winds, a coupla feet of snow and ice, and no power.  That's what an evacaution of DC would be like - total and complete and utter gridlock, with cars off the streets and busses piled up against telephone poles and stone walls and slid sideways across major arterials.  With the precipitation in the air and the lack of power, the emergency communication grid would be collapsing too, so it would rapidly turn into an "every person for themsleves" scenario pretty fast.  Throw on top of that Washington big wigs trying to bull their way through the jams with their limo and SUV convoys and you could soon see what sort of fun you might have.  I can readily imagine Cheney cowering in the back of his limo when he gets told that the they can't get through crowds, that they can't get relief to the convoy, that their vehicles are running out of fuel and that they might have to go on foot to someplace else, through DC.
