Roughly 90,000 people in New England lost power after the fourth nor’easter in three weeks hit Wednesday on the second day of spring, NBC News reported.

More than 4,400 flights were canceled, Amtrak reduced train service between Washington and Boston and several states began restricting traffic on major highways.

Weather factored into three fatal car wrecks, one in New York and two in New Jersey, reported so far. New York and New Jersey’s governors have declared states of emergency as white-out conditions and heavy snowfall enveloped parts of the states, according to NBC News.

Parts of New York were buried under the most snow the city has seen during this part of the year since 1964.

The end of the winter season has seemed especially long to many in New England as a spate of late winter storm continue to dump snow across the Northeast.

“We’re supposed to be getting ready for Easter, not a nor’easter,” a Philadelphia resident told Time.

“It’s time to move on to another season,” another said.
