ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA) -- Much of the debris from superstorm Sandy has a big coating of snow on it Thursday morning, thanks to the Nor'easter storm battering areas to our north.

9 News reporter Kristin Fisher reported on the storm and its effects on travel at Reagan National Airport Thursday morning. Almost ever flight to and from New York and New Jersey, more than 1,000 flights, were cancelled as a result of the bad weather. 

The travel isn't any better by train. Wednesday night, people stood in long lines for the Long Island Railroad. Snow-covered tracks suspended service for several hours. It's now back, but on a limited schedule. 

Penn Station was shut down for almost an hour due to overcrowding. The closure and the freezing cold resulted in some very frustrated commuters.

Keep in mind, this nor'easter moved ashore in the exact same location where Superstorm Sandy hit. Nearly 800,000 homes and businesses are still without power. Some people had just gotten their power back after 10 days with no electricity and now, they've lost power again.

Can you imagine? First, a once-in-a-century hurricane then a nor'easter just 10 days later? As one Long Island resident with no power said, "I feel like I'm living in a sequel to a bad horror movie!"

It's a sentiment shared by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. At a press conference Wednesday, he said he's waiting for the locusts and pestilence next.
