One of the biggest storms so far this winter dumped feet of snow over parts of New England early this week.
The storm brought a whopping 40 inches of snow to parts of Maine and caused travel delays across the region. In some cases, snow drifts were so deep that electric companies urged residents to take caution and watch for power lines while playing in the piles.
Avalanches in central Idaho cut off two of the three roads into one small town this week, with snow mounting up to 60 feet deep.
Idaho Department of Transportation (IDT) crews worked on Valentine's Day to clear the colossal amount of snow. Jennifer Gonzalez, a communications specialist with the IDT, told the Idaho Statesman that an above-average snowfall and an instability in temperature led to the avalanches.
Stanley, with a population of less than 100 people as of 2010, has only three roads of access. The third road, unaffected by the avalanche, was still hazardous due to ice as of Thursday evening.
Severe thunderstorms erupted across southeastern Texas on Tuesday morning, leaving thousands without power around Houston and causing significant property damage.
In Van Vleck, Texas, six people suffered minor injuries after an EF1 tornado caused structural damage to multiple homes and buildings in the area. At least three tornadoes struck the area.

Amid building drought, falling water levels in Mexico’s Nezahualcoyotl reservoir revealed a 450-year-old church known as the Temple of Santiago.

Architect Carlos Navarete, who worked with Mexican authorities on a report about the church, told the Associated Press that the structure was built by a group of monks who arrived in the region inhabited by the Zoque people in the mid-16th century.
It was then abandoned due to the plagues of 1773-1776, he said.
