I came across this piece of news about Nemo Blizzard 2013. I feel very lucky to be in Thailand…. brrr!
A ferocious storm system pummeled the Northeast on Saturday, burying some parts of region in more than two feet of snow and leaving more than 650,000 homes and businesses without power, mostly in New England.
After a day of pelting wet snow, five states — New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Rhode Island — had declared states of emergency, and Massachusetts had banned vehicles from every road in the state. Major highways like Interstate 93 were almost completely abandoned; downtown Boston, in blizzard conditions, was a ghost town lost in a swirl of howling winds and snow.
Dozens of cars that had gotten stuck on the Long Island Expressway Friday night remained there Saturday morning, unable to pass each other and virtually trapped by mounds of plowed snow.
