Tens of millions of Americans in Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states were blanketed with more snow in one setting than the 2019-2020 season.
The major winter storm dumped more than three feet in some parts of New York and Pennsylvania, led to airport delays, power outages, and travel disruptions.
By Thursday morning, many looked out their windows and saw a winter wonderland, just in time for Christmas next week. Others woke up this morning and saw utter hell, like those in New York cities of Binghamton and Endicott and Litchfield, Pennsylvania, who received upwards of 40 inches.
The National Weather Service (NWS) said about 10 inches of snow and sleet covered New York City, exceeding the measly 5 inches recorded in all of 2019-2020 season.
