NEW YORK (AP) - Airlines, Amtrak and even the NFL have all been shutting things down as a winter storm blankets much of the East Coast with snow.

Hundreds of flights have been canceled, while Amtrak has stopped train service between Boston and New York City. While the nation's capital has gotten far less than the predicted six to 10 inches, residents of New York City and New England are bracing for as much as 20 inches of snow, accompanied by strong winds that could bring blizzard conditions.
That's the forecast for Philadelphia too, where tonight's Eagles-Vikings game has been postponed until Tuesday.
The storm already has been wreaking havoc in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.
The travel misery started yesterday in parts of the South, where a rare white Christmas came with reports of dozens of car crashes.
