HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Many parts of eastern and central Pennsylvania are going to have a second day looking like snow-covered ghost towns, as schools and businesses make the call to remain closed or open late.
After Thursday's cleanup, a second band of precipitation crossing the same areas into Friday morning means the promise of another round of scraping and shoveling. It also means continued difficulty getting around, whether by car, bus, train or on foot.
Though the latest winter storm caused its share of headaches, it also left some residents elated as snowfall up to a foot or more kept many kids and adults at home again.
Power outages were relatively few, especially when compared to the hundreds of thousands affected by last week's ice storm.
