Dreams of a White Christmas may become reality across a broad swath of the nation.
A big pre-holiday storm has cut power to tens of thousands of
customers and disrupted travel from Iowa to New England.
More than 200 flights have been canceled at Chicago's O'Hare
International Airport, and more than 650 at the three major New York City-area airports. Many remaining flights have been delayed for hours.
Snowfall has affected a large region, but the worst of the ice storm -- and resulting power outages -- is in a band across northern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
In the Northeast, hard hit by last week's ice storm, snowfall
totals of up to 15 inches are forecast.
In New Hampshire, several thousand homes and businesses are
still in the dark more than a week after last week's storm.
