    Background: WASHINGTON WAS TAKEN BY SURPRISE ON THURSDAY (3O NOVEMBER) WHEN BETWEEN SEVEN AND 11 INCHES OF SNOW BROUGHT TRAFFIC TO A CRAWL AND KEPT SCHOOLS AND OFFICES CLOSED FOR A DAY.

    POLICE REPORTED HUNDREDS OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS - ALL OF THEM MINOR. THERE WERE NO FATALITIES IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA.

    MUCH OF THE SNOW-WHICH WAS THE HEAVIEST FALL FOR ANY NOVEMBER DAY IN WASHINGTON SINCE 1953 - WAS EXPECTED TO MELT BY THE WEEKEND. THE SNOW IN WASHINGTON WAS PART OF A MAJOR FALL WHICH PLOUGHED INTO THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC STATES.

    THE SNOW CAUSED THE CLOSING OF MAJOR AIRPORTS IN WASHINGTON, BALTIMORE AND PITTSBURGH.

    BUT APART FROM INCONVENIENCE TO SHOPPERS AND WORKERS, THE SNOWFALL, AS USUAL, PROVIDED PLEASURE FOR THE YOUNGSTERS - ESPECIALLY WHO GOT A DAY OFF SCHOOL.
