BOSTON - Workers up and down the East Coast are tugging on their boots and lugging out their snow shovels, trying to return to their post-Christmas routines as a treacherous winter storm crawls up the coast.
In Boston, it seems many travelers are heeding the warning to stay home or arrive late to work. The monster storm dumped about a foot of snow on southern New England on Monday.
The blizzard conditions wreaked havoc on travelers from the Carolinas to Maine and thousands of airline, bus and rail passengers are stranded.
Airlines are scrambling to rebook passengers but say they didn't expect normal service to resume until Tuesday. New York City's airports remain closed due to blizzard conditions on Monday.
