Northeast Snowed In

March has arrived but spring is holding out: the massive blizzard that blanketed the northeast yesterday, dropping eight to 12 inches of snow in most places, left a trail of wreckage behind it: a 15-mile traffic jam in North Carolina; 350 car crashes in New Jersey; 900 cancelled flights in New York; and, tragically, four deaths in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Long Island. On the bright side: New York City school children enjoyed their first snow day since 2004.
