Week’s Second U.S. Storm Snarls Travel, Shuts Schools

The second winter storm of the week swept into the U.S. Northeast with snow and ice, grounding more than 2,000 planes, closing schools and cutting power to more than a million customers.

Boston received 9.7 inches (25 centimeters) of snow by 1 p.m., the National Weather Service said. Four inches of snow fell in Manhattan’s Central Park, with a quarter-inch of ice on top of that, before the storm wound down, said David Stark, an agency meteorologist in Upton, New York. More than 12 inches were reported in New York City’s northern suburbs.
