"Bread, milk, eggs and beer, all the necessities," manager Everett Castle said.

Washington, D.C., could get 3 to 7 inches of snow, while the mountains of western Maryland could see 16 inches by Wednesday night. Minor tidal flooding was possible along the Delaware coast, the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay and the lower Potomac River, the National Weather Service said.

As miserable as things could get for commuters, taxi driver Balwinder Singh of Herndon, Va., said he was looking forward to the storm.

"People tip better in the snow," he said.

As the heavy, wet snow fell in Chicago, residents were working their shovels and snow-blowers.

Pat Reidy said she skipped work and did 40 minutes of yoga as a warm-up for the heavy lifting she was doing in her neighborhood near Wrigley Field.

"I’m trying to avoid a heart attack," the 52-year-old finance worker said.

Mike Morawski, 53, was helping clear the sidewalk in front an older neighbor’s home.

"We don’t want her digging out," he said. "She’s a tender, little woman, a piano teacher. She doesn’t need to be shoveling."

Chicago’s love-thy-neighbor ethos has its limits, though. With the winter blast, Morawski expected the return of an old city tradition in which residents clear a parking space and keep it reserved with a lawn chair.

"They’ll all come out tonight, believe me, when people start digging out," he said.
