Northeast returns to everyday routines after snow

NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Commuters heading back to work in around the Northeast for the first time since the blizzard are being urged to use caution and leave extra time.

The westbound lane of a major roadway on New York's Long Island has reopened, and train lines that serve New York City and its suburbs are mostly running. Boston's commuter rail service back to normal, but delays are expected.

But the routine for some residents from Long Island to New England will be disrupted by school and workplace closings.

In many New England communities, snow removal crews were out early, making driving even trickier.

The storm that slammed into the region with up to 3 feet of snow was blamed for at least 15 deaths in the Northeast and Canada, and brought some of the highest accumulations ever recorded.
