Biden was nearly swept off the ramp by a snowstorm in the U.S.

U.S. President Joe Biden was nearly blown off the aircraft ramp because of the snowstorm, which covered a number of regions of the country on January 3.

The American leader was flying from Delaware to Washington, D.C., but the plane had to land at Andrews military base due to bad weather.

The weather conditions were not better there: the head of the White House had to sit in the plane for half an hour because of a snowstorm.

Biden took a few steps down the ramp and wobbled, grabbed the hand-rail and after a short pause continued on his way to the waiting presidential cortege.

A snowstorm has hit Washington, D.C., as large flakes of snow fall, forming a thick blanket of snow on the ground. Schools, federal offices, and a White House briefing have been canceled due to the weather. This is the first time such snowfall is observed in two years, writes The Washington Post.

In a number of states the work of public transport and airports is suspended.
