Historic October Nor'easter

This weekend shattered daily and monthly snowfall records from the Mid Atlantic and Northeast.  Analysis shows that 86% of the Northeast is covered by snow with the average depth of 4.4"  This wet, heavy snow coupled with much of the leaves on the trees resulted in downed limbs and branches knocking out power to 2 to 3 million people.
