More than a million homes and businesses were left in darkness and cold Wednesday after snow, sleet and freezing rain moved into the Northeast. The region's second winter storm of the week canceled classes, closed government and business offices and sent cars and trucks sliding on slippery roads and highways. Around a foot of snow fell in some states. Moving in overnight from the Midwest, where it wreaked similar havoc, the storm tested the region already battered by a series of heavy snows and below-freezing temperatures this winter.

Hmm maybe the government can stop overproducing things for the military and start working on such things as vehicles that levitate (eliminate need for traction on surfaces), and fusion energy (eliminate need for electricity/gas/fuel)?

Once again, the headline is completely inaccurate. It says "Lights our for 1 Million." But then it says lights are out for 1 million customers. Assume that an office with 500 employees is ONE CUSTOMER, a school is one customer and a house with 3 occupants is one customer, one has no idea of the actual impact, which is far worse than suggested.
