NEW YORK (AP) — Falling temperatures could lead to icy roads and sidewalks across the Northeast following a late-season storm that plastered the region with sleet and snow. The powerful nor'easter paralyzed much of the Washington-to-Boston corridor, but fell short of predicted snowfall totals in New York, Boston and Philadelphia. The storm dumped 1 to 2 feet in many places, grounded more than 6,000 flights and knocked out power to nearly a quarter-million customers from Virginia northward.
DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas woman is telling her local utility to go climb a tree. Actually, 67-year-old Jeri Huber climbed the pecan tree herself on Monday to protest the utility's plan to trim the branches. The tree sits on Huber's property and she says Oncor is encroaching on her rights as a property owner. Oncor says it just wants to make sure tree limbs stay out of the way of power lines. It got a temporary restraining order against Huber and a crew was able to trim the tree.
