With a pistol strapped to his side, Paul Andrews gently throttled up the engine on his flat-bottomed boat and cruised down the ribbon of open space between the trees. The trouble was, only days earlier this had been the road to his house. Then the floods came, spilling the Trinity River out of its banks. The water roiled around trees and houses and over roads.

A large storm stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to New England threatened to dump up to a foot of snow in northern states while prompting flood warnings Friday in the South. Snow fell also in the Midwest and Great Plains Friday, delaying flights for up to three hours at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, officials said. Winds gusting up to 25 m.p.h. whipped across central Michigan, causing blowing snow that cut visibility and sending wind chill factors to as low as 15 degrees below zero.

Scattered light rain moved across parts of the drought-stricken South, but forest fires remained out of control in some states and forestry officials cautioned against too much optimism. "We may get a couple of days of relief but one rain is not going to take us out of the fire season," said U.S. Forest Service spokesman Doug Williams in Atlanta. He said rain fell over Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana, plus Kentucky and West Virginia as a cold front swung eastward across the region.
