East Coast residents continue to dig out from last weekend’s massive storm that covered a stretch from Georgia to Massachusetts in record amounts of snow and ice.

Washington, D.C., Baltimore and New York City received more than 2 feet of snow, according to AccuWeather. Philadelphia received just a shade less. All four major cities shattered daily records for the most snow on Jan. 23.  J.D. Vincent says about 24 inches fell in Maryland.

Hit hardest was Glengary, West Virginia, population 277, where an amazing 42 inches of snow covered the ground.

Almost as big a problem as the snow was where to put it all.

The storm that began on Friday and continued into Sunday dumped more than 1 foot across portions of Kentucky and over 6 inches in Tennessee and Arkansas. North Carolina also was hard hit by snow and ice.

In New York, plumber Jim Cogger (left) says he’s doing great on Long Island after receiving about 20 inches of snow.

Timothy Hoglen says it was four days before he could get out in Fletcher, North Carolina, located about 30 miles southwest of Old Fort, where 16 inches fell through Saturday afternoon.
