Snow smashes northeastern U.S. for second time in week

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/03/2015 - 07:36
By Ellen Wulfhorst and Elizabeth Barber NEW YORK/BOSTON (Reuters) - A record breaking winter storm walloped the northeastern United States on Monday, burying Boston to force the delay of its Super Bowl victory parade and leaving behind more than a foot (30 cm) of snow in the Chicago area. The second major storm in less than a week pummeled residents from New York City to Boston with snow, freezing rain and gusty winds, and was blamed for at least four deaths. Boston, already blanketed by two feet (60 cm) of snow from a blizzard last week and predicted to get another foot, set a record for the snowiest seven-day period in the city's history. Heavy snowfall expected to last until about midnight prompted Mayor Marty Walsh to postpone by one day until Wednesday the parade to celebrate the New England Patriots' 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's National Football League championship game.
