Two more storms are headed for Washington state this week as it struggles to recover from what's already on the ground.

Spokane, Washington, has had more snow so far than it gets in a typical winter. The total is just under five feet, with 8 inches of that falling from Sunday into Monday. At least three roofs collapsed, including at a supermarket, a hardware store, and a church gymnasium.

Bismarck, North Dakota, is not as hard-hit, but still has its greatest December snowfall total on record: more than 33 inches. Parts of Minnesota have 14 inches of new snow.

In Michigan's Upper Peninsula, measurable snow fell in one township for a record 22nd consecutive day. Some 5,000 electricity customers in Michigan who lost power Sunday are still in the dark.
