Just as the East Coast began to recover little more than a week after it was slammed by Hurricane Sandy, a winter storm brought an unwelcome rain-snow mix to New York and New Jersey through Wednesday.

From Connecticut to Rhode Island, the storm dropped 3 to 6 inches — or even more. Worcester, Mass., saw 8 inches of snow, and Freehold, N.J., had just over a foot overnight. That meant more trees snapped and power lines down in an area where thousands people have been without power since Nov. 29. Here’s a breakdown of the power outages as of Thursday morning:

  • New Jersey: 400,000 without power; 20,000 of these cases are new
  • New York City and Westchester: 70,000 without power; 55,000 of these are new cases
  • Long Island: 200,000 without power; 60,000 of these cases are new
  • Connecticut: spotty outages reported

We found some of the most incredible photos from the storm and have included them below:

Katie Wilford was leaving her Brick Township home near Barnegat Bay as the nor’easter approached Wednesday. She bundled her sons Nick, 14, and Matthew, 10, into the minivan in search of an open motel.

“It’s a little overwhelming,” she told the Associated Press. “I can’t believe we’re doing this again. We’re going on Day 10 with no power. That’s a long time. I just want the sun to come out and things to be normal again.”

Many have been voicing their frustrations over the back-to-back storms on Twitter:
