(FOX NEWS) The blizzard that was expected to pound the Northeast Corridor spared much of New Jersey and New York, but lived up to its billing in New England, burying much of Connecticut and eastern Massachusetts under as much as two feet of snow.
Weather models that prompted New York and New Jersey to issue massive travel bans proved to be off target as the storm system responsible for the blizzard was about 50 miles further east. By mid-morning Tuesday, roads were opened and bus and train service, suspended overnight, resumed, allowing workers in New Jersey and New York to get to their jobs. The blizzard had originally been predicted to bring between 2 and 3 feet of snow to an area stretching from northern New Jersey to southern Maine, along with hurricane-force winds.
However, by early Tuesday, most forecasters said that only New England would bear the brunt of the storm, and even then the snowfall would not be as bad as expected.
