WASHINGTON — All but four of the hundreds of popular food trucks in the Washington, D.C.-area turned off their engines and stovetops as a snowstorm mucked up the region and kept thousands of customers indoors.

Most trucks sent out messages on Twitter Thursday, telling followers that the “snow wins,” ”the weatherman was right,” and “go back to bed.”

The Red Hook Lobster Pound truck penned a poem: “The snow took its toll. Sadly, the lobsters won’t roll.”

Just four trucks braved slushy and slippery roads and periods of heavy snow. One dared customers to order ice cream sandwiches.

Monisha Chakrobortty, a 42-year-old Alexandria resident, says she ordered a pulled pork sandwich from the Carolina Q truck in downtown Washington. She says “it’s nice to get something hot” with everything else closed.
