    Background: The Northeast...now digging its way out of almost unprecedented winter snows....has been told that it can expect the mixture as before by Friday.

    The week-end storm made a number of local records. At least 27 lives were lost. Boston with 19 inches of snow, recorded its worst blizzard in 37 years.

    New York City awoke to a frigid 6 above zero this morning. In Atlanta, Georgia, it was only 4 above.

    Misery and, in many instances, hardship was widespread throughout the East, but by a freak it was a mid-Western town, Michigan City Indiana, that was among the hardest hit.
