Last week, temperatures in the New York metropolitan area were in the 60's. What a difference a few days make. In just 24 hours, the northeast has had snow, sleet, freezing rain, just rain and flooding.

Ice on tree limbs and power lines completed the insult, knocking out power in Westchester County.

A convenience store on Pine Island had no power, so the cash register wasn't working. The owner had to make change the old-fashioned way.

A storeowner who knew the rough driving conditions and knew her regular customers even better had coffee ready, even if it meant using a portable generator.

Wednesday's (02/13) downpours added to the mess, causing flooding across Westchester County.

In New York City, chunks of the Bronx River Parkway were closed because of danger to drivers, but a few people were unfazed by the nasty weather.
