Heavy snow and high winds pound upstate New York.


Heavy winter snowfall stuck upstate New York, causing significant disruptions and isolating large parts of the region.  Albany had twenty inches of snow and Troy, New York had two a fall of two feet in a few hours in a storm local residents said was the worst since 1836.  Troy was cut off for a time with all roads and railroads blocked.  Rail travel was particularly hit, with hundreds of passengers forced to spend the night stranded in their carriages.  (By John Osborne)
