    Wednesday morning

    Here is today's video forecast. It shows the powerful storm off New England but outlines the recovery from the extreme cold that starts tomorrow.

    This map depicts the circulation around the "blizzacane" off the East Coast. The storm brought about 4 inches to the Washington area, 6 inches to Cape May, N.J., and flurries from New York City to Boston. However, out at Nantucket, Mass., winds gusted to 80 mph in the midst of heavy snow, so it could be called a blizzacane (no, there is no such official term).
