    Nemo found them. Power outages from the winter storm were recorded throughout the Northeast on Friday and Saturday, leaving a total of at least 655,000 people without it—including 185,000 in Rhode Island and a whopping 405,000 in Massachusetts. Another thing that might not be running? Cars. Rhode Island and Connecticut closed all roads during the blizzard to allow snow plows to do their work. Not bad for a storm that shares its name with a children’s movie.
