The storm has left thousands of passengers stranded after flight cancellations; It also triggered multicar pileups and other traffic nightmares across Midwest
A powerful winter storm that whipped its way across the United States this week still had more to give early Friday.
Portions of northern Maine face up to 13 more inches of snow, the National Weather Service said.
While the Northeast is used to dealing with heavy snow in late December, some parts of the country have not seen this kind of weather in decades. Canadians braced for a whiteout, too.
"If you are in Atlantic Canada ... you are just getting going. If you are in New York City the cold air is coming down the Hudson (River)," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.
"If you are off to the east, you're still going to get snow in Maine on up into New Brunswick. And that snow could be heavy at times. We're talking about another foot in some spots."
Since it swept across the country this week, storm-related incidents have killed 10 people, including two children in Arkansas and an 81-year-old Alabama man. He died Thursday of injuries suffered when a tree fell on his house in Georgiana.
As the storm wraps up its weeklong run across the county, total snow accumulations of up to 2 feet are possible in central Maine, leading to hazardous roads, forecasters said.
"Strong winds will cause blowing snow to create potentially even taller snowdrifts," CNN meteorologist Bonnie Schneider said. "Travelers across New England need to pay close attention to changing weather conditions and low visibility."
Snowfall totals of a foot or more were common throughout the region: 21 inches fell in Woodford, Vermont; 17.4 inches in Addison, New York; and 15 inches in Ashfield, Massachusetts.
Caleb Clark, a CNN iReporter in Brattleboro in southern Vermont, called it a 'classic snowstorm.' "
"(It is) a nice and fluffy New England snow, not too dangerous and you could walk around without mittens," he said.
The storm left thousands of passengers stranded after flight cancellations.
On Thursday, more than 1,200 flights were scrubbed, according to the flight-tracking website FlightAware.com. The site doesn't distinguish between flights canceled for weather and those called off because of mechanical reasons.
Early Friday fewer than 140 flights had been canceled.
Greyhound nixed six routes in the Northeast because of Thursday's snow.
Here's the damage that the winter storm has brought so far:
