Roads were slick, causing accidents across the state. A harried-sounding officer at the State Police station in Ray Brook yesterday afternoon said, "There are more accidents than I have time to count."

Winter comes back to the North Country

Winter finally returned to the North Country today with snow, freezing rain and wintry conditions that have mostly been a no-show this season.

Tree limbs and power lines are snapping. In Saratoga County, an estimated 40,000 people are without power. It's not expected to be restored until tomorrow.

The Red Cross is opening a shelter and warming center for area residents at the Maple Avenue Middle School between Six and Seven tonight.

Western and central New York metro areas are also reporting up to a half-inch of ice on roads, trees and power lines. As a result, almost 40,000 homes in the Syracuse area are without power - more than 50,000 homes around Rochester.

Roads are tied up because of snow, accidents and even some fatalities across the region.

A harried officer at the State Police headquarters in Ray Brook said, "There are more accidents than I have time to count." He warns that all roads are now snow-covered and slippery.

To get a better sense of the weather system that has moved in to the area, Jonathan Brown called the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vermont. Meteorologist Brook Taber, says things are just getting back to normal.  Go to full article
