(Newser) – Weather watchers say up to a foot of snow fell in parts of southern New England as the latest winter storm moved through the Northeast. The storm had ended in the region by this morning and dry weather was expected for days, although strong winds may chill the bone. A National Weather Service meteorologist in Taunton, Mass., said six to 12 inches of snow fell from yesterday afternoon and overnight in Rhode Island, eastern Connecticut, and eastern Massachusetts, including Foxborough where the New England Patriots play. Many residents lost power after wet snow piled up on power lines.

If it wasn't for global warming, the storm would have been much worse.

Actually, because of global climate change, it becomes BIG NEWS when the old weather patterns do their thing.

What is the big deal? It's winter, it snows; quit making a big drama of it every time the eastern part of the country gets a little snow. North Idaho got 15 inches one day last week, then 6 more the day after, and another 8 a few days later... did it make the news? No... it's winter, get over it.
