Schools reopen in upstate NY after 2-day closure

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (AP) Schools from Buffalo to the North Country are reopening after being closed for two days because of a blizzard that dumped up to nearly three feet of snow on some areas.

Roads, highways and schools in a region stretching from New York's southwestern corner to the St. Lawrence River were shut down Tuesday and Wednesday because of the arctic conditions that included blowing snow and wind chills of minus-30.

The National Weather Service says the storms dumped up to 22 inches of snow on the Buffalo area and 33 inches on Watertown in northern New York.

In the village of Adams, near the eastern end of Lake Ontario, residents opened their homes to about 150 truckers and travelers who got stranded when Interstate 81 from Syracuse to the Canadian border was closed because of the weather.
