Blizzard menaces U.S. East Coast
NEW YORK (AP) -- A powerful East Coast blizzard menaced would-be travelers by air, rail and highway Monday, leaving thousands without a way to get home after the holidays and shutting down major airports and rail lines for a second day. Buses were stranded on snowed-in highways and passengers in New York City spent a cold night stuck in an unheated subway train. Officials urged anyone who did not have to drive to stay off roads in the region, where high winds pushed snow into deep drifts across streets, railroads and runways. More than two feet of snow had fallen in some areas by Monday morning. (40 images)
