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.
