The sun shone down on much of the East Coast yesterday, a day after a vicious nor’easter brought blizzard conditions to many areas, and left more than 100,000 customers without power for a stretch that could last into Monday. Winds that had gusted to more than 80 mph on Saturday died down on Sunday, and temperatures climbed into the upper teens and 20s as people emerged from their homes to dig out. The storm dumped snow from Virginia to Maine, but Massachusetts bore the brunt of the fury, getting more than 30 inches of snow. More than 100,000 lost power at the height of the storm, mostly in Massachusetts. That had dropped to about 35,000 by yesterday afternoon, mostly on hard-hit Cape Cod. No other states reported widespread outages.
