  • Description

    LARGE PARTS OF NORTH AND NORTHEAST UNITED STATES LOOK LIKE HAVING A PICTURE POSTCARD WHITE CHRISTMAS.A MAJOR SNOWSTORM HIT THE REGION ON FRIDAY, WHILE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY IS EXPERIENCING A SPELL OF UNUSUALLY COLD WEATHER.

    THE BLIZZARD BROUGHT TRAFFIC TO A STANDSTILL ON MANY MAJOR TRUNK ROADS.THE MAIN HIGHWAY BETWEEN NEW YORK CITY AND CHICAGO WAS ESPECIALLY HARD HIT, WITH HUNDREDS OF TRUCKS AND CARS HELD UP IN ENORMOUS TRAFFIC JAMS, WAITING FOR SNOW PLOUGHS TO CLEAR A PATH.IN PLACES WELL OVER A FOOT (30 CMS) OF SNOW HAS FALLEN, ADDING TO THE THREE FEET (.914 METRES) ALREADY LYING ON THE GROUND.THE BITTERLY COLD AIR HAS REACHED AS FAR SOUTH AS FLORIDA, WHERE THE CITRUS CROP IS ENDANGERED BY TEMPERATURES WELL BELOW ZERO.

    THE END OF THE COLD WAVE IS NOT YET IN SIGHT.WHILE SUCH TEMPERATURES ARE NOT UNUSUAL IN THE NORTHERN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, THE WIDE AREA COVERED BY THE ARTIC AIR MASS AND ITS PROLONGED DURATION IS VERY EXCEPTIONAL.
