On Monday, Feb. 3, 2014, the first of a series of winter storms barreled through the Northeast I-95 corridor, dumping snow from Washington, D.C., to New York City, and Boston, Mass.

The snowstorm buried New York City under eight inches of snow, while nearby cities Bristol, Conn., and Providence, R.I., received 3.5 inches. Regardless of the snow totals, thousands flights were delayed or canceled at airports throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
