A woman walks her dog in Battery Park after a winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow on some areas on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011 in New York. Commuters up and down the East Coast began the all-too-familiar task of digging out cars, shoveling sidewalks and slogging and slipping through a treacherous morning commute on Thursday after a drawn-out storm dumped more than a foot of snow in some areas overnight, heaping more misery on a region that has been hit by one snowstorm after another.
