Officials shut down a 27 mile stretch of the Long Island Expressway early Sunday morning to allow snow plows to clear the road.

The mammoth storm stretched from the Great Lakes to the Atlantic and covered several spots in the Northeast with more than 3 feet of snow. Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts took the brunt of the blizzard.
