Fog in Washington strands New England senators in Boston

Severe fog and airport instrumentation issues in Washington stranded several New England senators in Boston today, part of the impetus for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to postpone all votes until Tuesday.

Senator Scott Brown and his wife, Gail Huff, were delayed, as were Senators John F. Kerry and Jeanne Shaheen. Senators from elsewhere in the country were also prevented from arriving on Capitol Hill for a scheduled 5:30 p.m. vote because of flight delays and cancellations. It was instead pushed to 2:15 p.m. Tuesday.
