Vt. Slammed by March Snowstorm

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The National Weather Service says the late-season snowstorm is one of the top five largest March storms to hit the Vermont city of Burlington.

It ranks as 12th largest snowstorm overall recorded in Burlington. The rankings come from total snow from a single storm.

Burlington records 18.6 inches, with snow still falling. Sharon reported 26 inches.

Snow piled up across New England accumulating to two feet in some areas.

Vermont Transportation Agency Dispatcher Larry Dodge says slick, ice-covered roads across the state were caused by warm pavement when the storm began. But with schools closed across the state, highway problems are minimal.

Orford, N.H., reported 14.4 inches. The southern half of the state received far less. Still, there were many school closings and delays in the state.
