Nor'easter Grounds 9K Flights Since Sunday, Residents Dig Out

March 15, 2017 12:09 PM

Families in New England are trying to dig out of their homes after a massive snow storm.

Residents in Altamont, NY are working hard to stay ahead of a sloppy, late-season storm.

Parts of that area are expected to see anywhere from 12 to 24 inches of snow.

The powerful nor’easter grounded more than 9,000 flights since Sunday, closed schools in cities big and small, and prompted dire warnings to stay off the roads. Thousands are without power.

A warm February seemed to lull many into looking beyond winter, but this storm proved otherwise.

“The winters seem to be upside down now,” said Bob Clifford, an Altamont resident. “January and February are nice and then March and April seem to be more wintry than they were in the past.”
