A winter storm crashed down on New England today, delivering as much as two feet of snow to parts of Connecticut, with more falling every minute. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a 30+ inch report,” says one WTHN meteorologist. Police in the state have responded to roughly 500 spin-outs and accidents today alone. In Massachusetts, meanwhile, some 70,000 homes were without power, and every single flight out of Logan Airport was delayed or canceled.
“You can’t see across the street,” the manager of one Massachusetts roast beef shop told the AP. “The wind and snow is blowing about 40 miles an hour sideways.” In Maine, plows were having difficulty keeping up with the white stuff, with an inch accumulating every hour. New York City, on the other hand, has been plowing much more efficiently than it did during the last storm, and has gotten only 9 inches so far, compared to 20 last time.
