Massive blizzard Nemo from space

Winter storm Nemo has broken over the east coast of the United States triggering travel meltdown - and some very nice pictures of snowfall.

The winter storm is set to cripple air travel, with internal and transatlantic flights cancelled to New York and Boston, and public trasnport across huge areas of the East Coast.

Motorists have been hit too, with cars on roads stuck in snowdrifts and drivers forced to get out and push. Early forecasts predicted up to 3ft of snow in some areas.

Blizzard warnings are in place in Portland, Boston, Maine, Providence and New York City.

But the chaos was also a chance to snap snowy scenes as urban landscapes were transformed by Mother Nature's special effects, as these efforts below show.
