The storm has been blamed for more than a dozen deaths, mostly in traffic accidents.
Snowbound airports resumed limited operations, but many flights were still canceled or delayed. School systems in the path of the storm remained closed for a second day, including those in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., although New York City schoolchildren headed back to class after only their third snow day in six years.
In Washington, the federal government was closed for a fourth straight day. The nation’s capital joined Philadelphia and Baltimore in logging their snowiest winters in history.
