Rain, Snow Hit East During the Thanksgiving Rush

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A wet and blustery storm along the East Coast has dumped up to 9 inches of snow in parts of upstate New York but hasn't caused the all-out gridlock many Thanksgiving travelers feared.

The storm made driving hazardous and tangled up hundreds of flights Wednesday. But many travelers marvel at how orderly and anxiety-free the airports have been during what's typically one of the busiest days of the year.

The storm unleashed wind-driven rain along the Northeast's heavily populated Interstate 95 corridor from Richmond, Va., to the tip of Maine.

The National Weather Service says New York City had 2 1/2 inches of rain and felt wind gusts of about 50 mph.

One big question lingers in New York: Will high winds ground Snoopy and the other giant cartoon character balloons at the Macy's parade on Thanksgiving Day?
