Children sled in the field behind Takoma Park Middle School after more than four inches of snow fell in some parts of the capital region, prompting schools to close January 22, 2014 in Takoma Park, Md. Temperatures fell into the single digits and pushed the windchill below zero degrees Fahrenheit along much of the Eastern United States. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
