Another storm pounds East Coast
The latest winter storm to pummel the country was moving off the East Coast by Friday morning after slamming the Southeast with traffic jams and power outages and dropping a foot or more of snow on parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Yet another round of snow was forecast for parts of the region Saturday. A sampling of what the most recent storm brought:
