A winter storm that froze the southeast U.S. pushed north on Thursday. Driving winds and heavy snow snarled travel and closed many schools from Washington to Connecticut, creating havoc for winter-weary parents. Others took advantage of it. More than 700,000 people, including residents of Georgia and South Carolina hit by a heavy blast of ice a day earlier, were without power as the storm made its way up the coast. It closed much of Washington and threatened to drop up to 18 inches of snow in some areas.
