BOSTON (AP) - The silver lining in the Northeast storm clouds may be that the horrific weather came in on a weekend when fewer people were on the roads.
That's given crews a fighting chance to catch up with road clearing.
The behemoth storm packing hurricane-force wind gusts and blizzard conditions dumped more than 2 feet of snow on New England and knocked out power to 650,000 homes and businesses. The snow is still falling.
The National Weather Service says up to 3 feet of snow is expected in Boston, threatening the city's 2003 record of 27.6 inches.
Airlines canceled thousands of flights through today. New York City's three major airports and Boston's Logan Airport closed.
The storm is being blamed on at least four deaths in New York and Canada.
