The experts say in fact it wasn't a blizzard — but whatever you call it — it was big, big storm that dumped up to three feet of snow across the region, and life in Boston and much of the state is only just beginning to return to normal.

Most schools were still closed today. More than a hundred thousand electric customers remain without power. And many streets in the Boston area are still snarled with snow, making today's commute a big challenge for many Bay State residents.

Guests

Richard Davey, State Transportation Secretary.

Boston.com "It doesn't matter really if we gave it a name. The storm happened. It was windy, snowy, power went out, and some damage occurred along the coast. Nature doesn't care what we humans call the events she dishes up. The National Weather Service (NWS) is responsible for putting out warnings and watches to the general public; private originations don't take on that role. We, in the media, then disseminate the information from the NWS via radio, newspaper, TV, blogs, tweets etc."
