More snow, more frustrations as powerful storm pushes on

A powerful winter storm that whipped its way across the United States this week still had more to give early Friday.

Portions of northern Maine face up to 13 more inches of snow, the National Weather Service said.

While the Northeast is used to dealing with heavy snow in late December, some parts of the country have not seen this kind of weather in decades. Canadians braced for a whiteout, too.

"If you are in Atlantic Canada ... you are just getting going. If you are in New York City the cold air is coming down the Hudson (River)," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

"If you are off to the east, you're still going to get snow in Maine on up into New Brunswick. And that snow could be heavy at times. We're talking about another foot in some spots."

      I haven't been here yet, so I am not sure what you are talking about, Rascal Rabble.
      Sounds like you're the one whining.

    After hearing this mornings report (CNN TV Live) here in Los Angeles,CA about the " Draught problems of the Mississippi river" being caused by Several Mid western, Northern and North East States, Why not consider Trucking,Barging or by train, SNOW deposits from The North & North Eastern as well as from the Southerrn states that are hit heavy with unseasonal snow storms. It is a no brainewr that we could use SNOW FALL, yes Snow Fall, instead of just skiing and snow boarding on, put the water to use.

    Who are these fools complaining about a little snow? It's next to NOTHING compared to when I was a kid in the 70's! Besides, snow is awesome; one of the things I hated most when living on the west coast was the lack of a real winter. Enjoy it, dress for it, and stop complaining like babies!
