Utility crews from as far away as Georgia, Oklahoma and Quebec have descended on the Northeast, helping to restore power to the final 150,000 customers who suffered outages on Friday and Saturday.
More than 600,000 people were without electricity at the height of the storm, which dumped up to three feet of snow – and in some areas even more – on Friday night and Saturday.
Students around Boston, Providence and Long Island are enjoying another snow day, as road crews work to clear roads and sidewalks.
On a more serious note, the storm is blamed for 15 deaths, several of them from carbon monoxide poisoning.
While the forecasters had expected Boston to be at the epicenter of the storm, it turns out that Hamden, Conn. took the gold medal for total snowfall, with a whopping 40 inches.
That’s 15 inches more than Boston received, and 12 more than fell in the historic Blizzard of ’78.
We check in with the fire chief in Hamden, Conn. for the latest from that town.
