PHOTOS: Blizzard Slams Northeast

Communities around New England looked like ghost towns Friday night — as streets that typically would be choked with traffic were quiet, except for whistling winds, and empty, except for a blanket of thick, sticky snow.

Tens of millions of people were in the blizzard’s path, and many more saw any hopes of getting anywhere squashed, thanks to thousands of flight cancellations affecting some 60 airports or government officials’ orders that drivers stay off the road.
