Bollywoodfever, March, 25: Thousands across New England dedicated their Sunday to clearing the aftermath of a significant weekend blizzard that left swathes of the area blanketed in over two feet of snow in certain spots, instigated numerous road incidents, toppled power lines, and plunged hundreds of thousands in the Northeast into darkness, with some facing the prospect of days without power.

The storm’s heavy snowfall spanned from upstate and northern New York to Vermont, New Hampshire, and much of Maine. Accumulations ranged from 8 inches to 12 inches (20 to 30 centimeters), with some of the highest figures topping 30 inches (76 centimeters) in south central Vermont, according to Zack Taylor, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

“This was indeed a major winter event, and for several regions, it marked the heaviest snowfall of the season from a single storm,” Taylor remarked.

The storm, bringing a mix of sleet, freezing rain, and dense, wet snow, resulted in fallen trees and power lines, causing numerous flight delays and cancellations.

New York City faced significant disruptions, with floodwaters affecting subway operations, shutting down sections of the Cross Island Parkway, and stranding drivers on waterlogged roads in Central Park, where over 3.5 inches (9 centimeters) of rain was recorded. A massive tree collapse over several vehicles on Fifth Avenue led to traffic blockages.

In Lodi, New Jersey, the Saddle River’s overflow led to extensive road flooding.

Central Maine Power, Maine’s leading utility provider, commenced damage cleanup and power line repairs on Sunday, anticipating an extended recovery effort in the storm’s most affected locales. By the end of Sunday, around 170,000 customers were experiencing power outages in Maine.

“Saturday night saw considerable damage to infrastructure, with our evaluation teams currently assessing the extent to ensure swift and safe restoration efforts,” mentioned Jon Breed of Central Maine Power.
