Storm buries North Country


Clinton County Emergency Services Director Eric Day also thought drivers were being cautious, and he noted that plow crews seemed to be keeping up with the snowfall.


Accumulation from Thursday’s storm was expected to total 12 to 18 inches across the North Country, according to the National Weather Service station in Burlington.

But another storm is headed toward the region, said meteorologist Brooke Taber.

“We are watching a storm for the weekend. Right now, that looks like a general light snow. A dusting to several inches.”

— Staff Writer Dan Heath and Editor Lois Clermont also contributed to this report.
