    As the first snowstorm of 2014 spread from the Midwest to northern New England from Thursday morning through Friday morning, more than 20 states were left buried.

    New York and New Jersey declared states of emergency late Thursday afternoon, and later the mayor of Boston declared a snow emergency.

    The storm evolved into an all-out blizzard from New York City to Boston Thursday night into Friday morning, dumping the most snow on areas from Portland, Maine, down to Cape Cod, Mass.

    In the wake of the blizzard, more than 1,500 flights were canceled, the JFK airport was closed and the Long Island Expressway and the New York Thruway were closed into Friday morning.
