Spring storm drops foot of snow on Northern NY, New England

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WKOW) -- A late April storm has knocked out power to thousands of people in Vermont, covering roads with snow and giving some kids an unexpected snow day.

Some schools closed in northern Vermont and New Hampshire and about 15,000 customers are without power, according to utilities in Vermont.

The National Weather Service estimates parts of New York's Adirondack Mountains and northern Vermont received more than 13 inches of snow since Tuesday morning, something experts call uncommon for this time of year.

But Albany, N.Y., weather service meteorologist Kevin Lipton says he remembers a significant snowfall around mid-May in 2002.
