APTOPIX Winter Weather

Eric Hartford tries to dig out an ambulance carrying a patient en route to St. Lukes Hospital in New Bedford, Mass., on Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015, as the region digs itself out of the snow storm that covered the area. The nor’easter was predicted to continue to pound Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine with snow and wind through Tuesday. Total accumulation was expected to reach or exceed two feet in most of Massachusetts, potentially making it one of the top snowstorms of all time. (AP Photo/The Standard-Times, Peter Pereira)
