Area crews cope with storm's aftermath

(Continued)

John Cook, the owner of C. E. Kiff Inc. in Delhi, had a busy day as an area supplier of heating oil. Although his company encourages people to schedule automatic delivery, he said, there are always customers who run out during the winter. His company handled some of those calls during the storm.

“It’s part of what we do,” he said. “We deal with this every year.”

Delaware County emergency services director Steve Hood said he had not heard of any “bad” accidents during the storm. When tractor-trailers got stuck going up hills on Route 206 near Walton, the state Department of Transportation responded to put extra salt on the roads. In general, people who didn’t need to be driving appeared to stay home and stay off the roads, he said.

Temperatures are expected to start warming today with a high of 24 degrees and low of 15. On Sunday the temperatures will reach a high of 34 and a low of 26. The forecast calls for a chance of rain or freezing rain before 1 p.m. Sunday, then rain likely. Snow showers are likely Monday, mainly before 1 p.m., according the National Weather Service forecast.
