"Boston reported 9.9 inches of snow as of 1 p.m., bringing its total to 34.2 inches over the past seven days. That's the snowiest one-week period in Boston since modern weather records began in 1891.
"Winter storm warnings remain in effect for a large part of the New England."
— The AP reports that in Detroit:
"The National Weather Service said 16.7 inches fell at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus on Sunday and Monday. It was the No. 3 snow on record for Detroit and the area's most since a 19.3-inch dump Dec. 1-2, 1974, the agency said."
NPR's David Schaper in Chicago tells our Newscast unit that "many Chicagoans spent the morning trying to dig their cars out of waist-deep snowdrifts while others didn't even bother trying, knowing they'd very likely get stuck a short time later on the still unplowed side streets."
David says Chicago Public Schools and most suburban and private schools are closed, but Chicago school buildings are open with some staff on hand for children with nowhere else to go.
