FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- Love is blooming in the snow as Mid-Atlantic residents dig out from the winter's biggest storm in time for Valentine's Day.

The nor'easter that buried Maryland, Delaware and northern Virginia in up to 19 inches of snow was linked to at least four deaths.

After a second, smaller wave of snowfall overnight, transportation officials around the region are warning people Friday to watch out for ice and some flooding. Icy conditions closed a southbound section of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway early Friday.

The federal government and District of Columbia government are opening two hours late. Delaware is opening state offices in New Castle County two hours late and in Maryland a liberal leave policy is in effect for state workers. Many school systems are closed for a second day.
