A winter storm blanketed five southern U.S. states with snow, sleet, and freezing rain from Saturday into Monday. Some areas in North Carolina and Virginia saw more than a foot of snow by Sunday afternoon. More than 300,000 homes and businesses were without power in the region, the majority in North Carolina. Parts of Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia also lost power.
