About 650,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity in the Northeast Saturday, and many roads across the New York-to-Boston corridor of 25 million people were impassable after a massive blizzard on Friday.

Snow began falling across the Northeast on Friday, ushering in what was predicted to be a huge, possibly historic blizzard and sending residents scurrying to stock up on food and gas up their cars. The storm could dump 1 to 3 feet of snow from New York City to Boston and beyond. (AP Photo/Standard Times, Peter Pereira)
