Northeast Recovers after Record Blizzard
Punxsutawney Phil was wrong with his early spring prediction this year. A deadly storm raced across the Northeastern part of the United States this weekend. In some areas they received over forty inches of snow in only two days! Power has been out in most of the storm affected areas since Friday and power crews are working their hardest to restore it. The power has been out due to hurricane-force winds and thick/heavy snow. Cars are buried under the mess thanks to gigantic snow drifts. Nine people have died to snow-related accidents. In some coastal areas there actually has been flooding. The temperatures are supposed to reach the forties which could result in roofs caving in. Many schools and businesses will be closed on Monday to dig out from the storm.
