The Guardian is reporting the snowstorm as it’s top story today.

We lost electricity at 12:05 pm, Saturday, and as of 10:06 am Sunday, we still remain without power. In the eighteen years I have lived in America, it has never snowed so early. The last early snow fall was in the mid ’90’s the day before Thanksgiving, which is typically the second to last Thursday in November.
Here is a video taken two hours into the storm:
