Northeast digs out of winter's worst snowstorm

The Northeast was digging out from the winter's worst snowstorm, which dumped up to two feet of snow across nine states. By Sunday, major airports prepared to reopen, snowbound highways were being cleared, and trains were running close to normal.

But the storm that began Friday was felt. Up to 33 seamen were feared dead after the coal freighter Marine Electric capsized in high seas off Virginia. At least another 18 deaths were blamed on the storm.

In Washington, D.C, government operations were brought to a standstill as about 20 inches of snow covered the city. New York City officials called it the worst blizzard in 36 years.
