Overnight it dropped to below freezing, and it stayed there. This led to the top layer of snow to freeze over into a crunchy layer – and then this morning, it snowed for hours. We are now at 5.5 to 6 inches, with a layer of ice in the middle. This gives you a crunchy effect when you walk. And it kills power lines (230,000 people have lost power) and brings down trees (one person was killed by a falling tree). The governor has declared a state of emergency for the entire state. They are forecasting no more snow, but as it melts, they predict flooding.
