A forecast for freezing rain and cold temperatures means parts of the country socked by a weekend storm will be covered with ice through Christmas and beyond.

Hundreds of thousands of people from Michigan to Maine remain without power this morning after the storm dropped up to two inches of ice in some places.

Luckily, most schools were closed for the holidays.

In most of the country, getting a snow day means a day off from school. But as with many things in south Florida, a snow day means something entirely different.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Elaine Chen of WLRN  has the report.
