Winter Wonderland

Blizzard Snows in Northeast

After only one snow day in the previous five years, New York City students received their second in just a matter of weeks after receiving at least 17 inches of snow. Not everyone enjoyed the storm as much as they presumably did, however—230,000 homes and business lost electricity in New Hampshire, plus an additional 200,000 in New York and 100,000 in Maine. Winds in New Hampshire were clocked as high as 90 miles per hour. Also, at least three deaths are being blamed on the storm, including a man who was killed in Central Park by a falling branch.
