First task as mayor? Dealing with Nor'easter

More than a foot of wind whipped snow is expected to fall and that snow will be accompanied by an arctic blast of subzero temperatures in some areas.

To the north - Boston and Cape Cod are expected to bear the brunt of this nor'easter. By this time Friday, people there could be digging out of 18 inches of snow.

The weather is also having a ripple effect at many of the nation's airports. Already more than 2,000 flights have been canceled.

This fast moving nor'easter is also challenging some of the nation's newly minted mayors. In New York – this is the first test for Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration and Boston's next mayor, who takes office Monday, will face the daunting task of dealing with the storm's clean-up.

And as we have seen time and time again - these storms can make or break a political career.
