A major winter storm has cut power to hundreds of
thousands of homes and businesses across the Midwest, with northern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio especially hard-hit.

More than 300 flights have been canceled at Chicago's O'Hare
International Airport, and many schools are getting an early start
on their holiday break.

Up to a foot of snow has been forecast across much of Michigan,
and some areas are reporting wind gusts of up to 30 mph.

Wintry weather had already hit parts of the West, and a record
December snowfall of 3.6 inches was recorded in Las Vegas. Nearly
two feet of snow fell in Spokane, Washington. Although skies are
sunny today, a forecaster in Seattle is calling this "the calm
between storms."

Snow and strong winds are expected to blow into the Seattle area
tomorrow, with sustained winds of up to 70 miles per hour -- and
gusts up to 90.
