Record snowfall reported across the Northeast.

The Northeast got rocked Wednesday with its third winter storm in as many weeks.

More than two feet of snow fell in many locations.

For hundreds of thousands of snow-weary residents another day of digging out is on the way.

The heavy snow toppled power lines, with more than 100,000 people losing power in Massachusetts.

There were white-out conditions in Boston, yet Logan International Airport stayed open with one runway operating in the blizzard.

Connecticut was also buried by the storm.

Heavy snow there caused the partial collapse of an apartment building roof.

The New York area was largely spared this time.

Nine inches fell in the Big Apple, but plow crews were up to the task.

If winter misery loves company, then the Northeast has plenty of it.

There's measurable snow on the ground in 49 of 50 states.

The only state without snow is Florida...Hawaii's mountain peaks are covered.
