Almost immediately after shoveling out from Winter Storm Niko, another big snowfall blanketed the Northeast. Winter Storm Orson brought well over 1 foot of snow to areas in New England starting February 12 and ending February 13.
The mix of snow, ice and strong gusts of winds made travel around the area treacherous, and many schools and businesses closed as a result.
