PHILADELPHIA (AP) — It's going to be a long, cold cleanup.
After getting socked with the biggest snowfall of the season in many parts of Pennsylvania, the digging and shoveling is getting underway.
Public and parochial schools in Philadelphia and many of its suburbs are closed Wednesday. In central Pennsylvania, many schools are opening several hours late.
The National Weather Service predicted the storm could drop more than a foot of snow in southeastern Pennsylvania followed by bitterly cold temperatures. Other parts of the state are seeing anywhere from five to 10 inches of snow.
Speed limits have been reduced on all local highways and Pennsylvania transportation officials are urging everyone to stay home if possible. They say road conditions will continue to be hazardous into Wednesday.
