So What Happened to That Huge Snowstorm We Were Warned About?
On Sunday the grocery stores were packed with people stocking up on food, schools had already delayed classes for Monday and people were planning to work from home.
But on Monday morning most of the Mid Hudson region woke up to clear roads. While only a few inches fell in Ulster and Dutchess, Orange saw a bit more snowfall, but it was all mostly cleared from roadways.
Crews were way more prepared for this storm than they were for the half-inch that fell late last week, causing major traffic issues with cars slipping and sliding across roadways. That storm wound up being a surprise, while Monday morning's snowfall gave plenty of advanced warning.
If you're heading into Northern New Jersey or Westchester County this morning, you may run into more problems. But so far, Hudson Valley traffic reporter Nancy Reamy says that things are moving fine.
The thing people are now worried about is power outages. The snow that did fall is heavy and has stuck to many tree branches. If it doesn't melt quickly, we may see some downed limbs and trees that could also bring down wires.
