The U.S. is shivering in the grips of a freezing winter with 49 of its 50 states now having snow on the ground.
Two winter storms have dumped several inches of snow in some states and left flights grounded from Texas to the Carolinas.
The only state to avoid the icy conditions was Florida, but even the Sunshine State suffered flight cancellations due to heavy fog.
New York and Boston were braced for more heavy snow today after one storm was forecast to dump up to a foot on the northeast of the U.S.
Southern states also experienced unusual snow fall, with motorists left stuck in Atlanta due to a shortage of clearing equipment.
