UPDATE: Commuters Face Tough Driving Conditions On First Workday After Storm
SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) - One Connecticut commuter is describing the drive to work today as "awful." Fernando Colon had to navigate through heavy sleet on a two-lane highway that was down to one lane because of high snow banks.
On New York's Long Island, Samantha Cuomo says her normal 40-minute commute to work turned into two hours. She says the streets are "an absolute mess" -- and that the roads near the group home that she manages haven't been plowed.
Snow banks are piled high on the unusually quiet streets of downtown Hartford, Conn., where the big insurance firms encouraged people to work from home today.
The number of homes and businesses without power from the Friday and Saturday storm is down to about 130,000 -- most of them in Massachusetts.
Boston's public transportation system, which shut down on Friday, resumed full service today, but commuters have been told to expect delays.
The storm that brought up to three feet of snow to the Northeast is blamed for at least 15 deaths. It brought some of the highest accumulations ever recorded in the Northeast.
