VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

ACROSS NEW ENGLAND -- IT WAS A DAY FOR DIGGING OUT.... WITH SOME AREAS GETTING AS MUCH AS THREE FEET OF SNOW.....WITH DRIFTS AS HIGH AS FIVE FEET.

MILFORD CONNECTICUT GOT 38 INCHES OF SNOW.

NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT RECORDED 34 INCHES.

PORTLAND MAINE SET A RECORD WITH JUST UNDER 32 INCHES.

AND CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE RECORDED IT'S SECOND HIGHEST AMOUNT EVER....WITH 24 INCHES.

AT LEAST FIVE DEATHS IN THE U.S. WERE BLAMED ON STORM, INCLUDING AN 11-YEAR-OLD BOY IN BOSTON WHO WAS OVERCOME BY CARBON MONOXIDE AS HE SAT IN A RUNNING CAR TO KEEP WARM WHILE HIS FATHER SHOVELED SNOW.

SOUNDBITE: Octavius Rowe / Neighbor

"I don't know how long the boy was in the car, at some point the father was still working and was unaware of the boy's condition, so very, very unfortunate."

PUBLIC TRANSIT WAS SUSPENDED IN THE CITY AND LOGAN AIRPORT WAS CLOSED.

SOUNDBITE : Ed Freni, Director Aviation Director, Massachusetts Port Authority :

" It's going to take at least another twenty-four hours for the airlines to bring their equipment together with their crews. We think the that hopefully by Monday afternoon certainly by Tuesday that we will be back into regular operation."

ACROSS THE REGION -- ABOUT 475,000 HOMES AND BUSINESSES REMAINED WITHOUT POWER LATE SATURDAY NIGHT, DOWN FROM A PEAK OF ABOUT 650,000,

SOME HOMES COULD BE WITHOUT POWER FOR DAYS.

STILL, THE STORM WAS NOT AS BAD AS THE BLIZZARD OF '78, USED BY LONGTIME NEW ENGLANDERS AS THE BENCHMARK BY WHICH ALL OTHER WINTER STORMS ARE MEASURED.

IN NEW YORK -- 11 INCHES OF SNOW FELL -- NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE THE LIST OF THE CITY'S TOP TEN.

MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG SAID THE CITY "DODGED A BULLET" AND ITS STREETS WERE IN GREAT SHAPE.
