The Nation : Snowfall in East Disrupts Schools, Travel

A storm swirling through the East dumped more than a foot of snow that closed schools, knocked out power to thousands of residents in several states and caused hundreds of traffic accidents. The storm dumped up to 19 inches of snow on Stillwater, N.Y., 18 inches on parts of Vermont, 16 inches on Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, up to 20 inches on the Berkshires in Massachusetts and a foot on Maine and Newbury, Conn. The storm caused delays at New York’s Albany County Airport and Burlington International Airport in Vermont, and temporarily closed Bradley International Airport in Connecticut. Schools were closed in parts of Maine, Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, western Pennsylvania, Vermont, Maryland, Ohio and Tennessee, officials said. Roads were treacherous in Upstate New York, where the heaviest widespread snow fell from the Catskills to southern Vermont.
