MEXICO— What to do when winter hits your country and COVID pandemic restrictions forces you to stay home? The right answer should be stay home, but thousands of U.S. and Canadian tourists flocked to Mexico’s nudist beach of Zipolite to leave something more than their dollars behind.
“We were just dealing with too much. Lockdown affected us a lot, and specially my daughter because we live in a small apartment, with no possibilities of going out somewhere. I feel we really needed to go out,” said George Barrera, a 35-year-old Texan who traveled with his family to Zipolite during the last days of January.
The busiest winter weather pattern in decades brought a slew of impacts across a large swath of the United States over the holiday weekend. Massive power outages and slippery travel were reported from the West to the East Coast on Saturday, as multiple storms unleashed snow and ice.
Oregon, Virginia and North Carolina, were among the hardest-hit states in terms of outages. As of midday on Saturday, more than 400,000 customers were without power as ice downed power lines in Virginia and North Carolina.
A path of snow extended from the westernmost parts of Washington and Oregon, down to New Mexico and Texas, all the way to Michigan.

An Arizona tourist claims he was injured while under hypnosis at the Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis Show in 2019.
Kevin Casselbury, of Scottsdale, Arizona, has filed a lawsuit against Savard, his company, the V Theater Group and Miracle Mile Shops, where he performs, saying they should be held accountable for the injury.
The complaint claims that Savard “failed to warn Mr. Casselbury that an unreasonably dangerous condition existed” inside the theater.
