While the storm underperformed in some areas, others received up to 3 feet of snow, including West Winfield New York, which saw a total accumulation of 42 inches. 

On Wednesday, airlines were working to return to normal operations, but more than 1,000 flights were canceled and nearly 3,000 delayed, according to FlightAware.com.

On Wednesday, the majority of the power outages had been restored. However, more than 12,000 customers remained in the dark in New Castle County, Delaware, the Associated Press reported.

While New York City schools resumed school on Wednesday, Boston schools remain closed.

Sixteen deaths were attributed to the storm.
