Plenty of Bostonians took to Google Thursday to endure the first major snowstorm of the year, a storm that caused massive flooding damage and left thousands without power in the region.

Google compiled a list of the top five searches related to the storm and the top five "how to" searches that popped up in the past day in states along the coast.

Jennifer Lopez is not playing by the rules. Jenny From the Block headed back to New York City in honor of her next film, the highly anticipated strip club drama, "Hustlers." The first trailer has arrived--and the star is running her own game in it. In one of the first clips, the 49-year-old impressively twirls on the stripper pole. Her prowess as an exotic dancer comes as no surprise considering her rigorous workout routines and coveted physique. The film also stars Constance Wu, Cardi B, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles and Lizzo. It's plot-line centers on a group of strippers that are up to no good. "The game is rigged and it does not reward people who play by the rules," Lopez's character, Ramona, declares.

Considering Boston got more than a foot of snow and waters flooded the Seaport District, it’s no surprise the top question in Boston throughout the day was "Where is the snowstorm right now?"

Other top searches included "What to do if power goes out in winter storm?" and "What do you need to have before a snowstorm?"

The top "how to" question searched in the Boston was "How to prepare for a snowstorm." 

Google also shared top searches from other New England states that wanted to know how to deal with the storm:

New Hampshire: "Where is the winter storm right now?"

Vermont: "When is the snowstorm coming?"

Connecticut: "How much snow is CT getting?"

Maine: "When is the next snowstorm coming?" 

The humidity returned Tuesday night and now, storms return Wednesday. We have a First Alert posted for possible strong to severe thunderstorms Wednesday and night, along with localized flash flooding in heavier downpours through Thursday mid-day. The day starts with many clouds in the morning and some patchy fog. Showers have arrived in western New England and are spreading across from west to east.

Maine and New Hampshire also had the top "how to" search involving how to prepare for a winter storm.
