The Great Storm Abates

With the stormfront clearing and weather beginning to normalize, citizens of New York City and the greater metropolitan area are beginning to see signs of something almost as elusive as sunlight has been: electricity. Across portions of lower Manhattan and Harlem electricity is being restored by Con-Edison line crews working around the clock. Emergency crews from thirteen additional states are assisting in this massive recovery effort that is spanning up and down the east coast from Virginia to Maine.

While damage estimates on the storm have not been calculated yet, analysis are expecting trillions of dollars of infrastructure damage spread out over the coastal portions of Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C.

The most severely hit regions of the country are centered around the state of Massachusetts which was the epicenter of the winter weather pattern, dropping over twenty feet of snow in most places. Maine, Connecticut, and portions of south-eastern New Hampshire were similarly hit hard. Areas like New York and New Jersey suffered moderately lighter snowfalls and similar temperatures, while the cold in Virginia never dropped below 20 degrees.

Weather experts are simply calling this event the "Great Storm" and experts from around the world are trying to determine just how vast the aftereffects of this storm will be globally outside of the context of alleged Evolved involvement.

In New York City alone, the cleanup effort for the Great Storm is expected to take up to two months to restore full power and functionality to the city and city planning officials are already trying to get ahead of the projected flooding that will severely hamper reconstruction efforts.

The world may have survived what could have been the coming of the next ice age, but the repercussions of this storm are far reaching and it will take more than just the melting of the snow to thaw the public's memory of what happened this year.
