Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — A winter storm in the eastern U.S. has snarled travel and given hundreds of school districts struggling amid a surge in coronavirus cases an excuse to shut down for a respite. Many spots in New England got more than a foot of snow Friday. Schools in Boston closed. Providence, Rhode Island, schools switched to distance learning. New York City kept the nation’s largest school system open. Officials advised people to stay off the roads. More than 2,400 flights have been scrubbed. The storm had already blanketed parts of the South in snow and ice the day before.
