An Amish buggy heads down a road in Parkman, Ohio, on Wednesday as a snowstorm whips across the Ohio Valley. New England was especially hard hit Wednesday as a snowstorm toppled seasonal snowfall records and dumped so much heavy snow on buildings that some collapsed under the weight. "People can't keep up with the snow. They think it's going to stop, but it's just not stopping," said Shawn Greenwood, owner of Greenwood Construction in St. Johnsbury, Vt. Farther west, lake-effect snow fed by moisture from Lake Michigan piled up nearly a foot deep Wednesday in northwest Indiana, and forecasters said totals could reach 20 inches by this morning.
