The massive Boxing Day storm which impacted much of the Northeastern United States is being called the “Blizzard of 2010”.
Air travel in America’s busiest airspace nearly shut down and road and rail transport was crippled.
Thousands of stranded air passengers turned terminals in Philadelphia, New York and Boston into open-air hotels while they waited for planes to take off and land on plowed runways.
Flights slowly resumed, although experts said it would likely take several days to rebook all the displaced passengers.
