Extreme weather

The United States has seen some extreme weather this winter. Here are two pixs from yesterday. Above, Elaine Weston of Crested Butte, stands on a snow bank to shovel out snow so light can enter the windows of her home in the Colorado mountain town, on Wednesday. As snow keeps piling up in Colorado's mountains, the state's snowpack is building to its biggest level in more than a decade. (AP Photo/Nathan Bilow)

As they mourn those killed in the nation's worst tornadoes in more than a decade, people across a devastated swath of the South are also coming to grips with a deeply shaken sense of home.
