ALBANY, N.Y. — Snowplow crews and residents across the Northeast shoveled out driveways and sidewalks Saturday after the region's latest storm buried some areas in as much as 2 feet of snow.
"It's too hard. I don't like all the cleaning up," Raza Khan, 38, said as he salted his driveway in suburban Green Island, where more than 18 inches fell.
At least four deaths were blamed on the storm.
The second northeaster of the season dumped 12 to 24 inches on the Albany area and the Catskills region, the Berkshires in western Massachusetts and southern Vermont, the National Weather Service said. Parts of Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine received as much as 20 inches.
A Christmas Day storm blanketed rural upstate New York in as much as 3 feet of snow.
"These are two blockbuster storms within about a week," meteorologist Thomas Wasula said in Albany. "I've lived here all my life and I can't remember anything like this.
