THANKS­GIV­ING HIT: STORM BUILDS OVER US EAST, PROM­ISES UP TO 20 INCHES OF SNOW

Millennium Post - - Front Page -

NEW YORK: A storm that snarled Thanks­giv­ing travel across much of the coun­try brought a messy mix­ture of rain, snow, sleet and wind to the East, slow­ing the Mon­day morn­ing com­mute, clos­ing schools and of­fices, and can­cel­ing or de­lay­ing hundreds of flights.

The storm dumped one round of snow on parts of the re­gion late on Sun­day and could drop 10 to 20 inches to­tal by Tues­day morn­ing from Penn­syl­va­nia to Maine, fore­cast­ers said. Heavy snow was also pos­si­ble in the Ap­palachian Moun­tains down to Ten­nessee and North Carolina. Alana Kirk­patrick didn’t en­joy her 5 am “work­out” in Nashua, New Hamp­shire, which con­sisted of re­mov­ing heaps of snow from her car. “Why do I still live in New Eng­land?” she said.

In ar­eas not al­ready blud­geoned by the first wave, schools closed pre­emp­tively as rain was ex­pected to turn into snow in the re­gion’s first sig­nif­i­cant storm of the sea­son, a nor’easter so named be­cause the winds typ­i­cally come from the north­east.
