Major Snow Storm for Great Lakes and New England

A major winter storm that moved from the Midwest to the Northeast overnight has killed at least seven people. The system could still drop a foot and a half of snow in northern New England. Blowing snow nearly obscured the field at Cleveland Browns stadium Sunday, where Santa made an appearance and players fell down as they tried to make a first down. But nothing could take away the chill for the legion of shovelers trying to clear seats. And everywhere in between, most people's day off vanished as a mix of snow, sleet and ice blanketed their homes. The deadly storm caused tens of thousands to lose power and sent cars sliding off roads. The conditions led to one tragic accident near Indianapolis. A mother and her three daughters died when their car slid on any icy road into a pond. Traffic accidents also killed three people in Michigan and Wisconsin. Here in New York City, the roads were in good shape Sunday afternoon following hours of rain. Only a few clumps of snow still dotted the streets. But traveling by air was a very different story. The weather canceled hundreds of flights across the country, prompting everyone to offer the same advice. The storm is only expected to intensify as it heads north Sunday night.
