(Associated Press) —  From West Virginia to southern Maine, millions of people were digging out Monday following a massive storm that dumped up to 3 feet of snow in the Washington D.C. region, halted most travel in New York City and flooded some coastal areas in New Jersey.

New York and Baltimore began lifting travel restrictions and hearty souls ventured out on snow-choked streets Sunday, while mass transit systems up and down the coast gradually restored service.

The storm dropped snow from the Gulf Coast to New England, with areas of Washington surpassing 30 inches. The heaviest official report was 42 inches, in Glengary, West Virginia.
