PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The storm that iced over Dallas, buried Philadelphia in snow and stranded drivers and air travelers everywhere in between at last plodded out of New England, exiting in muted fashion after days of foul weather.
Snow caused messy travel conditions and widespread school and government closures along the Eastern seaboard Tuesday, but turned out to be more nuisance than menace following heavy snows on the unsuspecting Mid-Atlantic region over the weekend.
Hundreds of transportation crews treated and cleared highways in New England, where up to 3 inches of snow fell in places.
