The National Weather Service recorded 7.6 inches of snow in New York's Central Park, smashing the daily record, and snow was still falling across the region.

The storm grounded thousands of flights, closed government offices in Washington, D.C., and led to several emergency declarations. Here's a look at how the snow affected the East Coast and other parts of the country:
