In Pictures: Blizzard hits Appalachia

Sandy converged with a cold-weather system that turned into a horrible hybrid of rain and high wind—even snow! Wet snow and high winds spinning off the edge of Superstorm Sandy spread blizzard conditions over parts of West Virginia and neighboring Appalachian states. Since early Tuesday, at least 236,000 customers were without power in West Virginia.

The National Weather Service said a foot and more of snow was reported in lower elevations of West Virginia, where most towns and roads are. High elevations in the mountains were getting more than two feet and a blizzard warning for more than a dozen counties was in effect until Wednesday afternoon.

Here are some pictures of the blizzard in Appalachia:
