Feb 24, 2007
DETROIT - The remnants of a huge winter storm plowed toward the East Coast on Sunday after dumping as much as 2 feet of snow in the upper Midwest, grounding hundreds of airline flights and closing major highways on the Plains.
Utility crews labored Sunday to restore power after the storm blacked out hundreds of thousands of homes and business in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and Ohio. Street and highway crews — nearly 300 snow removal trucks and plows in Chicago — worked to clear pavement of snow and ice.
