BOSTON (AP) — Much of New England continued to dig out from under more than 2 feet of snow and children in hundreds of communities enjoyed a second day off from school Thursday as power companies worked to restore energy to homes and businesses darkened by the region's third snowstorm in three weeks.
The winter storm that crippled the South earlier this week lightened up as it moved to the Northeast, before joining forces Wednesday with a system from the Midwest. The storms announced their arrival in New England with claps of thunder and record amounts of snowfall in some cities.
As the storm swept north, the National Weather Service reported snow on the ground in every state except Florida. That included Hawaii, which had 7 inches on the top of the Mauna Kea mountain. The winter weather was blamed for at least 18 deaths since Sunday when snow and ice hit the South.
Forecasters predicted sunshine Thursday in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, accompanied by wind gusts and temperatures below freezing. Snow showers and strong winds should blow over Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
"People will still have to bundle up to go out to dig out of their driveways and sidewalks," meteorologist Rebecca Gould said.
