Winter Storm Ethan Delivers a White Christmas to Northeast

If you were dreaming of a white Christmas it's time to wake up!

Winter Storm Ethan dumped snow across New England and New York on Christmas Day and continued bringing wintery weather to Maine on Monday evening.

The snow wasn't the only weather affecting the area throughout the day, as lightning and damaging winds prompted blizzard warnings for certain areas.

In the Boston metro area, an inch fell per hour on Monday morning.

While the snowstorm was a dream come true for those whose Christmases involved unwrapping presents and sipping cocoa around the tree, those trying to travel faced a holiday nightmare.

According to Weather.com runways were shut down due to low visibility conditions at major airports like Boston's Logan airport.

Some areas experienced more than a foot of snow.
