The coastal town of Scituate, Massachusetts, is frozen under ice. A powerful nor'easter hit New England Friday, creating pounding waves that left an entire neighborhood here flooded. Temperatures dropped overnight, and residents woke up to find all that water -- turned into slushy ice. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED WORKER SAYING: "I've lived here for 25 years, it's no big deal, we're used to this." The coastal community is busy cleaning up the frozen debris. No big deal for hearty New Englanders. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED WORKER ANSWERING REPORTER ASKING HOW DO YOU GET USED TO THIS?: "You get a boat, you cut through the ice, you come across, you park your cars across up the street. The water's running, the heat's on, the electricity is one. We're good." The ice won't melt completely away anytime soon. An Arctic blast of cold air is headed to the Northeast, bringing some of the coldest temperatures seen in two decades.
