    One of the great winter storms in New England history clobbered much of the region Friday night into Saturday.

    Yardsticks were needed to measure the snow with snow totals in excess of two feet measured across Long Island and in five out of the six New England states (with Vermont being the exception).

    Hamden, Conn., sits at the top of the blizzard's snowfall totals list with 40.0 inches.

    The blizzard came to an end on Saturday, but the effects will be felt for days to come with a new storm threatening to cause more problems for residents.
