Nemo Covers the Northeast with Record-breaking snow

Parts of New England and the Northeast battled record-setting snowdrifts this weekend after winter storm Nemo left as much as 3 feet of snow including The House Designers’ head architect’s private Long Island craftsman style home. Nemo put most of the major cities in the Northeast on lockdown for the entire weekend as gale-force winds and coastal flooding left hundreds of thousands without power and motorist stranded on the Long Island Expressway.
