Washington's mayor says city faces 'several days of cleanup'

Cleanup crews were out in force in Washington on Monday as the city struggled to return to normal after a massive winter storm.

Public schools were shut, most offices remained closed, and the streets were nearly deserted as many in the nation's capital enjoyed an unofficial long-weekend.

The BBC's Jane O'Brien went out to see how long it will take to get the city back to work.
