Storm Batters East, Closing Schools and Grounding Planes
"A severe snowstorm swept from the Midwest into major East Coast cities Wednesday morning, forcing school and office closures and grounding hundreds of flights across the vital Northeast corridor for the second time in less than a week.
"The powerful storm, which dropped as much as a foot of snow in some parts of the nation's midsection, moved with full force into Philadelphia, Washington, and later began pushing into the sprawling New York metropolitan area, where Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg took the rare step of ordering schools closed on Wednesday.
"To the dismay of parents and the delight of students, public school districts in nearly every major city along the Eastern Seaboard from Baltimore and Maryland up north to Boston and Philadelphia followed suit, ensuring that Wednesday would be a day for children to hop on sleds instead of school buses. Districts in dozens of counties throughout New Jersey, Connecticut and the rest of New York state also announced Wednesday closures."
