DENVER -- A late-season snow storm swept across Colorado's front range and began making its way onto the eastern plains and Midwest on Saturday. The storm, which was causing havoc on the roadways, dropped about 8 to 12 inches of snow in Denver, Kyle Fredin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Boulder, said in a telephone interview. The snow led to multiple accidents and roadway closures. In one area, south of Fort Collins, between 20 and 50 vehicles had crashed or gone off the roadway, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Missouri and Kansas awoke on Tuesday to another major snowstorm, the second in as many weeks, with six additional inches of snow blown by gusting winds into drifts as high as two feet and municipal officials warning motorists to be careful of treacherous roads. At least three deaths have been reported since the current storm began to blow its way from Texas through Oklahoma and into the Midwest on Monday. The National Weather Service predicted continuing, though lessening, snowfall as the storm heads into the Great Lakes region by nightfall.

Minnesota was recovering Monday morning from a winter weekend snowstorm that dumped as much as 15 inches of snow across the state, closing roads and causing hundreds of crashes. Blizzard conditions were so severe that at one point Sunday snowplows were pulled from the roads. Making things even worse for morning commuters, temperatures plunged overnight, turning roads icy. "Temperatures dropped dramatically," Lt. Eric Roeske of the Minnesota Highway Patrol told the Los Angeles Times on Monday morning.

A blizzard that had pummeled northeastern Colorado on Friday moved across Nebraska and into southwestern Iowa on Saturday, causing dozens of accidents on highways as visibility was reduced to near-zero in some places. The storm, the first major snowfall this winter for Colorado and the Midwest, dropped about 20 inches of snow in some parts of Nebraska, said Matt Masek, a National Weather Service meteorologist in North Platte, Neb. By Saturday afternoon, the storm, with wind gusts up to 30 mph, had moved into southwestern Iowa, where snow totals ranged from 4 to 11 inches, said Roger Vachalek, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Des Moines.

Heavy rain, snow and wind walloped the Northeast during the weekend, leaving 3.2 million people without power from Virginia to Maine and many more wondering: What happened to fall? "It's only October," said Melissa Mack of Hartford, Conn. "We haven't even finished the kids' soccer season. " Trees with their leaves colored in autumnal glory turned white from the heavy, wet snow. Many limbs and trees came crashing to earth under the weight, taking power lines with them.

"Is it time to Occupy Miami Beach?" a shivering Max Richmond asked another New York protester as she waited to get Vitamin C near the makeshift medical tent. They laughed and hugged for warmth. Since hundreds of anti-greed protesters descended on a park a block from Wall Street this fall, they have faced arrest, sleep deprivation, no bathrooms and rainy weather. They've had their backpacks and iPods stolen and their food tent invaded by freeloaders and tourists. But a downpour Thursday night followed by frost Friday was a reminder to even the most dedicated occupiers of what many have said will be their greatest test — a New York winter.
