The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for the entire coast of Maine, New Hampshire and most of MA.

Amtrak suspended all service on Tuesday between Boston and New York City.

It's official: Boston is in the middle of a blizzard as the Northeast gets slammed with the third nor'easter in almost two weeks.

Although the latest storm wasn't expected to knock out power to as many power customers as last week's nor'easter did, because the snow is lighter and fluffier, more than 237,000 customers in MA were without power Tuesday afternoon.

"I love a good snowstorm, but I'm ready, I'm all done", he told WCVB-TV.

"We are freezing", the 39-year-old said. "Six more weeks of winter, and probably then some", said Paul Knight, of Portland, Maine, as snow accumulated on his eyebrows.

Almost 2 feet (0.61 meters) of snow was reported in parts of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and ME by Tuesday evening.

The blizzard warning means sustained winds of greater than 35 miles per hour along with visibility of less than a quarter mile for prolonged periods, according to the weather service.

Not everyone complained. Andrew Gesler, who was walking in Portland with his son in a stroller and his dog alongside, said he was happy to see another big storm.

A fierce storm has lashed the north-east in the USA, with widespread power outages amid the hurricane-force winds and heavy snow. "It'll hit New England the hardest".

The NWS says central NY could get up to 12 inches (30 centimeters) of snow with winds gusting as high as 40 miles per hour (64 kph).

Light snow is still falling across the region, and will begin tapering off through the evening.

In Billerica, Massachusetts, where 25.5 inches (64 centimeters) of snow fell, Michelle Furlong made an age-old New England winter threat as she shoveled.

More than a foot of snow was expected in parts of CT.

Commuters wait in the snow on a subway platform in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday. But Secretary of State William Gardner and Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said under state law, town meeting elections must go on.

Snow is ongoing in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and ME, as well as on Long Island, New York.

Slick roads were blamed for at least one death in North Carolina, which got snow Monday.
