By later this morning all three of the New York area's major airports should be receiving in-bound flights following the big weekend snowstorm that made a dreadful beginning of the week for many.

Planes started flying in to LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International last night, and Newark Liberty is expected to soon do
the same.

The National Weather Service says the East Coast storm was the New York area's sixth worst since 1869, when record keeping began.

In Philadelphia, pedestrians dodged chunks of ice blown off skyscrapers.

And a bus carrying the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team got stuck in the blizzard for four hours while trying to return to their hotel after a game against the New Jersey Devils.

The storm left 20 inches of snow in New York's Central Park, 29 inches in parts of northern New Jersey and about a foot in Philadelphia.
