PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Pennsylvanians are coping with the aftermath of a major winter storm and digging out from a deep coating of fresh powder while many businesses and schools remained shuttered.
More snow was in the forecast on Friday and into Saturday, but it's not expected to be anything like the foot or more that fell Thursday.
The National Weather Service says the state's deepest snow was recorded in the Bedford-Somerset county area, where up to 22 inches fell. Southern York County, near the Maryland state line, got nearly 20 inches.
PennDOT says major arteries are open and clear of snow though a major pile-up blocked a portion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Philadelphia.
The Public Utility Commission says only about 2,300 customers in the state were offline as of early Friday morning.
