New England, NH digging out from latest storm

BOSTON (AP) — A wind-driven winter storm that brought blizzard conditions to Cape Cod fell short of forecast snowfall totals and spared the Northeast the widespread power outages that had been predicted.
Snowflakes were still flying Tuesday as New England residents continued to mop up from Monday's storm. And the misery may not be over.
The National Weather Service forecast scattered and localized heavy snow showers in Southern New England on Wednesday that could drop another 4 inches of snow, but are more likely to leave behind an inch or so.
Following predictions of up to 18 inches in some parts of New England, the totals by Tuesday morning among the hardest hit areas were 11 inches in Falmouth, Massachusetts, and 10 inches in nearby Yarmouth. Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard fell just short of 10 inches. Boston got 6.4 inches.
