BOSTON — A winter storm that dropped nearly 2 feet of snow just north of Boston, temporarily shut down major highways in New York and Pennsylvania and forced airlines to cancel thousands of flights nationwide menaced the Northeast today with howling winds and dangerously cold temperatures. The storm was blamed for at least nine deaths in the eastern half of the country.

The nor’easter — which brought plummeting temperatures that reached 8 degrees below zero in Burlington, Vt., early today with a wind chill of 29 below zero — dumped 23 inches of snow in Boxford, Mass., by early today and 18 inches in parts of western New York near Rochester. Thirteen inches of snow fell in Boston, while Lakewood, N.J., got 10 inches and New York’s Central Park got 6.
