New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says that the state has exceeded its original winter budget due to the string of heavy snowstorms this season.

Cuomo says Thursday that operational expenses, the cost of salt, overtime and equipment repair have been unusually high.   He says the extra spending is nothing that can't be handled through the budget process.   His administration says it's working on getting the budget number and actual expenses together for public release.

BOSTON (AP) — A massive storm packing hurricane-force winds and blizzard conditions is sweeping through the Northeast, dumping more than 2 feet of snow on New England and knocking out power to 650,000 customers.

More than 28 inches of snow had fallen in parts of central Connecticut by early Saturday, and areas of southeastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire notched 2 feet or more.

The National Weather Service says up to 3 feet is expected in Boston, threatening the city's 2003 record of 27.6 inches.

BOSTON (AP) — The governor of Massachusetts is banning all traffic from roads after 4 p.m. today, when the worst of a powerful snowstorm is expected to be bearing down on New England.

It's believed to be the first traffic ban in the state since the blizzard of 1978.

Boston could get as much as three feet of snow, which would break the city's snowfall record of 27.6 inches.

A forecaster says the storm is the type that "doesn't come along every day." Alan Dunham of the National Weather Service says it will be a "dangerous winter storm."

A midwinter storm headed to the Northeast U.S. on Friday could drop more than a foot of snow, setting up a weekend of skiing, sledding and snowmobiling in places that have been stuck with bare ground for much of the season.

The storm comes just after the 35th anniversary of the historic blizzard of 1978, which paralyzed the region with more than 2 feet of snow and hurricane force winds. This week's storm isn't expected to come close to that, but outdoor enthusiasts who have been disappointed with the season so far say they'll take what they can get.

Many of northern New England's rural communities depend on snowmobilers to keep stores, restaurants, motels and gas stations going strong, and they've seen a sudden increase in traffic thanks to recent snowfalls.

Many areas of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont saw little snow last year and a snowmobiling season that never really got off the ground. In Island Pond, which bills itself as Vermont's snowmobiling capital, the season was shortened to seven weeks from the usual 14.
