The massive weekend snowstorm that clobbered parts of the Northeast and Canada is being blamed for at least 18 deaths.
The epic storm swept through on Friday and Saturday with 1 to 3 feet of snow that entombed cars and sealed up driveways. Several people died from carbon monoxide poisoning while sitting in snowed-in vehicles.
Schools remained closed across much of New England and New York on Monday. More than 100,000 homes and businesses are still waiting for the electricity to come back on. About 650,000 customers had been without power, most of them in Massachusetts.
Marshfield, Massachusetts, residents Jim and Brenda Stewart have been using their fireplace to stay warm. They say New Englanders just hunker down and do it.
