    Massive Blizzard Pounds Eastern US 27 Dec 10 -
    Strands millions of travelers
    A powerful blizzard across the US northeast has buried the region beneath one to two feet (30-60 cm) of snow and sent temperatures plummeting.
    The monster storm forced cancellation of some 2,000 flights, stranding millions of travelers.
    In the New York area, John F. Kennedy International Airport, La Guardia Airport and Newark International in New Jersey were all closed Sunday and overnight.
    Meanwhile, light to moderate snow blanketed many parts of Alabama, Mississippi, and North Carolina, a very rare Christmas occurrence. In fact, Atlanta, Georgia enjoyed its first white Christmas in 128 years.
    The storm is expected to hit Nova Scotia later today.

    I-95 Blizzard from New Jersey to Maine 27 Dec 10 -
    A northward-moving strengthening storm will unleash a paralyzing blizzard along a vast swath of the I-95 Northeast corridor
    The storm is no joke. Travel in parts of the coastal mid-Atlantic and much New England will become difficult to impossible as the storm slides northward, intensifying into Monday.

    3 meters of snow in 3 days 25 Dec 10 -
    Record snowfall at Vancouver Island resort
    Mount Washington ski resort "has been pummelled with three metres of fresh snow in the past three days, burying lodges, cars and even ski lifts," says this article on the Canadian Press.
    Brent Curtain, a spokesman for the popular Vancouver Island ski resort, says in the past one-and-a-half months the resort has already gone halfway toward breaking its all-time record of 18.5 metres of snow -- which took five months to build up in the winter of 1998-1999.
    And if I recall correctly, that set a new record at the time.
