Winter Storm Stella: See Photos of the Blizzard That's Paralyzed the East Coast

Winter storm Stella has arrived in full force and is pummeling the East Coast, closing schools from Washington, D.C. to Boston and grounding thousands of flights.

While the storm caused disruptions, it also created a winter wonderland of sorts — just one week before the official start of spring.

See photographs above showing how the storm has impacted the Northeast, from the empty terminals at Boston's international airport to a snowy game of golf in Times Square.
