First Winter Snow Hit The Bronx…

The first significant snowfall of the season dumped nearly 3 inches of snow on the Bronx during the weekend storm. Besides the snow, the storm brought strong winds and slick roads causing dozens of accidents across the tri-state area as well as nearly 300 flight cancellations at the three major airports and dozens of accidents on area roadways.
