Eastern US Gets Battered With Snow

April 28, 2010 — It's supposed to be spring, but it's looking very much like winter across the eastern United States.

New York and New England were dumped with almost 60 centimetres of snow. Some of the heaviest-hit places are in Vermont.

Hydro officials say nearly 30,000 customers are offline in Vermont and New York state. Scattered outages have been reported in New Hampshire.

The spring storm began Tuesday morning and it's been falling ever since. Forecasters are predicting the system will keep pummelling the area through Wednesday morning.

New York Meteorologists have reported that such a snowfall is uncommon this time of year. However, in 2002, a similar type of system battered the same region around Mid-May.

But it's not all bad news for everyone. Skiers have been spotted taking advantage of the blast of snow -- especially since the regions was largely spared by the massive storms that bombed the rest of the country this past winter.

Currently, Sugarloaf ski area in Maine still has two ski lifts operating and 24 trails are good to go for avid downhillers.
