March is supposed to come in like a lion and exit like a lamb. But like so many things in 2014's winter of our discontent, that exit thing just ain't working out like it was supposed to. A spring storm on Wednesday brought fierce and challenging winds and snow across portions of Massachusetts and eastern Maine on Wednesday, hitting Cape Cod especially hard. Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard also were targeted by the storm, which forecasters said could drop as much as 10 inches of snow.

A 9-year-old who disappeared while looking for his dog in a snowstorm was found dead Sunday near a shallow stream about 300 yards from his family's home, in an area that had been searched several times before. The body of Corey Anderson was found curled in a ball in dense underbrush along the banks of an icy brook after the stripes of his Boston Bruins jacket caught a searcher's eye, police said.

Another snowstorm swept across New England on Wednesday, toppling seasonal snowfall records and dumping so much heavy snow on buildings that some collapsed. An unoccupied pizza shop collapsed at Weirs Beach in Laconia after the roof sagged about halfway into the two-story building and bowed the walls out, officials said. On Tuesday, several people had to flee as the roof fell in at the Over Easy Cafe in Ossipee, N.H. The dangerous snow load has kept roofing contractors and homeowners busy.

Residents in some Northeast towns woke up to flood waters Friday, a day after a spring nor'easter pummeled Massachusetts with as much as 7 inches of rain. Basements also were flooding in New Hampshire, and rivers in Rhode Island crested well above flood levels. Some rural New Yorkers lost power because of wet, heavy snow. Many of the worst-hit Massachusetts towns were north of Boston, including Lawrence, Winchester and Peabody.

Thousands of people were still without electricity in New England on Monday, three days after the start of a series of vicious storms that dumped up to 2 feet of snow and torrents of rain in the region. Three deaths were blamed on the storms, schools in several towns were closed and some residents had to flee their homes because of the lack of heat.

A storm that dropped more than a foot of snow in some areas bogged down highways and closed schools Tuesday from the Plains to New England. "I like snow. But I'd like to see this go. I thought the winter was over," said Bob Neeley of Olmsted, Ill., which got about eight inches of snow, the most to fall in the Southern Illinois town since 1979. Many motorists ended up in ditches or in fender-bender accidents. Police in western New York state blamed one traffic death on the weather.

A violent storm blamed for the death of a child in New York continued to pound New England on Sunday, leaving thousands without power, flooding roads and homes, and tearing boats from their moorings. Officials declared a state of emergency in several north shore Massachusetts towns, evacuating some residents. A 12-year-old boy in Babylon, N.Y., was killed Saturday when a tree uprooted by strong winds toppled onto him as the storm swept through Long Island.

New England spent Friday digging out from a blizzard that dumped nearly 2 feet of snow on the region, closing airports, cutting power to thousands and hampering the search for a missing child. Massachusetts State Police expanded a search for 9-year-old Corey Anderson of Norton, Mass., who was first reported missing at the height of the blizzard Thursday after he set out to find his golden retriever.

A January heat wave came to an end Monday across New England as a storm brought falling temperatures and heavy snow that closed scores of schools and caused road-closing traffic accidents. Up to 10 inches fell in some areas from eastern New York to Maine. Temperatures had been in the 50s and as high as 60 last week, but the mercury began dropping on Sunday. West Boylston, in central Massachusetts, had 10 inches of snow while totals across the state ranged from 3 to 8 inches.
