New Storm Slams Northeast with Snow, Ice

Ad Feedback

Spring may have arrived, but winter isn't going out quietly. Millions of Americans are in the path of a new storm that's bringing more snow, ice, and even some tornadoes from New England to Alabama.

As much as 16 inches of snow covers parts of New England on the first day of spring. It's just the latest batch in a long, messy winter.

"I thought I was done for the year, but I guess not," one snowed-in resident laughed.

But others aren't laughing anymore.

"It's ridiculous, we're tired of it," a New England resident said.

Half of the country is in the path of the latest storm that's brought dangerous, icy conditions to the Northeast and sent cars sliding across roads.

One truck driver said the bad weather has delayed his deliveries but it's unsafe to drive any faster.

"This is bad. I stayed at 10 miles per hour...You gotta do what you gotta do to stay safe," he said.

In the Southeast cars weren't sliding off the roads -- they were being blown off. The brutal winds of up to 80 miles per hour left thousands without power in Alabama and Georgia.

"We have downed power lines and want to make sure everyone is safe," one official said.

Schools across the Northeast remain closed Wednesday, and many districts are adding days to their calendar to make up for the ones missed because of snow.

New England has already received more than 100 inches this season, causing one man to question the nation's most storied weather forecaster.

"So much for the groundhog, huh?" he said. "I think he got that one wrong."
