A massive winter storm swept from Colorado to Maine Tuesday through Wednesday, Feb. 4 and 5, 2014, burying areas in at least ten states under a foot of snow.

Several states declared states of emergency, as road and air traffic conditions deteriorated during the storm. Multiple accidents were reported along major roadways, including one fatal incident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

By the time the storm subsided more than 3,270 flights had been cancelled nationally and nearly 3,500 had been delayed.

In the wake of the storm, more than 600,000 were left without power in southeastern Pennsylvania.

As temperatures drop in the region overnight Wednesday, black ice may develop and cause even more travel problems for the Thursday morning commute.
