No School for Kids Across Northeast, Except in NYC

Created: 01/22/2014 10:19 AM WDIO.com

NEW YORK (AP) - A winter storm dumped a foot or more of snow and closed schools across much of the Northeast - but not in New York City, where it was a regular school day for 1.1 million students.

Allison Pennell said her two children were "very cranky and bitter" when they learned they had to go to school Wednesday.

But Pennell, who said she grew up in the city herself, remembered hardly ever having snow days.

The storm stretched from Kentucky to New England but hit hardest along the heavily populated Interstate 95 corridor between Philadelphia and Boston. Snow began falling at midmorning Tuesday in Philadelphia and dumped as much as 14 inches by Wednesday morning, with New York seeing almost as much. Manalapan, N.J., had the highest snowfall reading with nearly 16 inches.
