Snow Snarls Northeast Traffic

December 29, 1987|United Press International

In New York City, morning commuters slipped and slid on a light powdering of snow that stuck to the streets before shovelers were able to clear the sidewalks. Rush hour traffic was a nightmare across the New York area. Getting to work in Boston, where four inches of snow fell in the morning, also was a major headache.
