Snow Storms in October

Rebecca was caught in that terrible snow storm that hit the east coast so she's busy keeping warm. She and her family are safe but she doesn't have internet access at the moment.

"The late October storm that shocked the Northeast on Saturday and Sunday with up to 30 inches of snow in spots. The wet, heavy snow accumulated on still-leafy trees and snapped off branches or toppled them altogether, taking down power lines. Communications were disrupted by collapsed cell phone towers. More than 3 million people lost power at some point, and at least a dozen deaths are blamed on the storm through traffic accidents, electrocutions or other causes."    from Boston.com

I've been through one of those October snowstorms, NOT FUN!! Except mine was in MN in 1991. It is going to take them quite a while to get everything back up and running.
