Winter Storms Bury, Freeze Northeastern U.S.

In the past month, a series of snowstorms and Arctic weather fronts have brought bone-chilling temperatures and record-setting snowfall levels to the Northeastern United States. New England has been especially hard-hit, with parts of Massachusetts and Maine recording more than 100 inches of snow this season—90.2 inches falling in Boston in just the past 30 days. As residents continually dig out, they've run out of places to pile the snow, in some places pushing it into the ocean. [30 photos total]
