Winter storm buries northeastern states in snow

Blizzard conditions battered communities from Virginia to Maine over the weekend. A nor’easter brought heavy snow, hurricane-force wind gusts, and frigid temperatures. More than 4,500 flights were canceled across the United States, and over 120,000 homes and businesses lost power in Massachusetts.

Which areas were hardest hit? Boston tied its record for the biggest single-day of snowfall on Saturday, with almost 24 inches. Winds gusted as high as 83 mph on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Southwest of Boston, the town of Sharon, Mass., had received more than 30 inches of snow by Saturday night, while Islip, N.Y., and Warren, R.I., both got more than 24 inches.
