NEW YORK - New York is the city that never sleeps but you wouldn't know it early Tuesday morning.

8 million people have gone inside and streets are deserted, except for the snow plow trucks making their rounds.

The first big storm of the year may drop up to 3 feet of snow on Boston and New York before it ends Tuesday, with freezing rain and strong wind gusts possibly reaching 70 mph. Blizzard and winter storm warnings have been issued from Maryland through Maine and into Canada.

The massive blizzard is set to hit a 250-mile stretch of the Northeast United States, affecting tens of millions of people from New Jersey to Maine.

Up to two feet of snow is expected in coastal states

NEW YORK - As millions of residents in the Northeast braced for a powerful blizzard set to sweep across the region, states announced travel bans and the suspension or reduction of public transit, thousands of flights were grounded, and officials urged people to leave work early before heavy snow and high winds would make travel treacherous.

"This will most likely be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City," Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday afternoon. He announced schools would be closed Tuesday and ordered all drivers off the roads by 11 p.m. Monday.

Cities big and small along the Philadelphia-to-Boston corridor of more than 35 million people began shutting down

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has declared that snipers are not heroes in regard to the Oscar-nominated film about a former Navy SEAL sniper who existed mainly to snub the life of named enemy lists.

In a series of Tweets, Moore said, "My uncle killed by sniper in WW2," Moore wrote. "We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse."

Another tweet agreed, stating "America has proven it is backwards, does not stand for what it preaches, is cowardly and glorifies torture, bombing, invading other countries without just cause, has cartoon films for the juvenile masses instead of films with messages as they use to produce. Amer

BAKER CITY, Oregon - Black ice is believed to be the cause of a freeway pileup involving more than a dozen tractor-trailers that left 12 people injured Saturday in eastern Oregon, police said.

Among those rescued was pickup truck driver Kaleb Whitby, 27, who miraculously escaped with minor injuries after he was sandwiched in his vehicle crushed between two big rigs. He was trapped for about 30 minutes inside the wreckage -- a scene captured by a photographer whose own truck became disabled in the pileup.

"Thank God that I'm still alive," Washington state resident Whitby told "Now I've got to go figure out why."

On the foggy, icy Oregon interstate, Kaleb Whitby plowed

In 1974, I graduated from Skyline High School in Oakland, California, an underachieving student with lousy SAT scores.

Allowed to send my results to three colleges, I chose MIT and Villanova, knowing such fine schools would never accept a student like me but hoping they'd toss some car stickers my way for taking a shot. I couldn't afford tuition for college anyway.

I sent my final set of stats to Chabot, a community college in nearby Hayward, California, which - because it accepted everyone and was free - would be my alma mater.

For thousands of commuting students, Chabot was our Columbia, Annapolis, even our Sorbonne, offering courses in physics, stenography, car mechanics, certifi

EL CAPITAN - From around the world, the crowd thickens climbers approach the summit of dangerous El Capitan.

The view across Yosemite Valley is a vista of snowy peaks in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The climbers are expected to finish the last effort and arrive or crawl the last few feet to the top.

It is the trill of a lifetime for two climbers trying to make history by being the first to scale a 3,000-foot sheer-granite wall in Yosemite National Park using only their hands and feet.

For 19 days, Kevin Jorgeson, 30, of Santa Rosa, Calif., and Tommy Caldwell, 36, of Colorado, have been attempting what many consider impossible on one of the world's most difficult climbs: Being the fi

PARIS, France - The first edition of Charlie Hebdo since last week’s massacre has been published, with a cover proclaiming, "All is forgiven."

France readers have purchased the magazine in record numbers, the newest edition of Charlie Hebdo. However, U.S. publications have refused to do the same, apparently afraid to front the Prophet Muhammad in U.S. stores.

Today the satirical newspaper's first issue since last week's deadly attack on its staff went on sale in France with an initial print run of 3 million copies and front-page coverage around the world.

But the New York Post reports that there will only be 300 copies of the issue for sale in the U.S., according to Martin McEwen, a
