Five Things You Need To Know About Winter Storm Orson

Plowable snow likely on Thursday

If it seems like it was just yesterday the Northeast had to batten down for a big, blustery snowstorm - well, you're nearly right.

The National Weather Service has posted a winter weather advisory for the region through 7:00 Monday morning. However, strong wind gusts, perhaps topping 40 miles per hour, will sweep across the corridor.

Up to a foot of snow fell in some parts of upstate NY by Monday, while 10 inches fell in Concord, N.H., and Woodford, Vt., on Sunday.

Schools were closed in most places, including New York City, Philadelphia and Boston, and government offices from the Philadelphia area to southern New England told most nonessential workers to stay home.

But snowstorms are a fact of life in ME, and we've survived our share of nor'easters and blizzards.

The National Weather Service has issued the Winter Storm Warning several CNY counties including Oneida, Lewis, Otsego, Oswego, Herkimer, and Madison through early Monday afternoon. "No matter how much snow falls, the city must take certain precautions to be ready for any eventuality". Some snow showers may linger, but it isn't looking like much.

The storm - the Valentine's Day Blizzard of 2007 - started off with light snow in the morning that intensified as the day progressed. Boston's Logan International Airport accounted for the bulk of the cancellations with more than 300 flights canceled into and out of the airport, according to FlightAware.

"The only vendors we have coming in is if we have to haul snow", said Vito Turso, the department's deputy commissioner of public affairs.

In northern New England, the storm was welcome news at ski areas, which last year faced some of the lowest snowfall totals in years. "It's night and day and everyone is absolutely thrilled".

Justin Kates, director of emergency management for Nashua, New Hampshire, said crews were out overnight clearing away about 14 inches of snow and the work carried into Friday where the focus was on clearing sidewalks and residential side streets.

"Now get to the grocery store and buy things you will never need".
