The Northeast has begun the challenging process of cleaning up after a fierce blizzard dumped up to three feet of snow in some areas.
ABC News reported that by the morning of February 9, 650,000 homes and businesses were without power, and at least 10 deaths were being blamed on the storm: five in Connecticut, two in New York, two in Massachusetts and one in Maine.
The storm blanketed New Jersey to Maine, affecting more than 25 million people.
