All Clear After Lesser Snowstorm Than Predicted

Well, schools closed – to the grumblings of many parents – but the polls are decidedly open.

Poll workers at Morse School – where Sleepy Hollow citizens can vote yes or no to two propositions to bond almost $9M worth of capital improvements to our public schools – reported a great turnout so far. Tarrytowners vote at Washington Irving. Polls are open until 9 p.m. and are using those beloved old-school lever machines.

To clarify any registration confusion you might have: voters registered for county elections can easily come to the polls today and quickly register to vote in school elections by signing in at the head table. You needn’t be registered with the county to vote today, but if that’s the case, you must have registered to vote for schools by Dec. 5.

Perhaps because many parents had to stay home with their kids today, voting numbers may be even better than normal, and it's a family-affair.

“It’s been busy,” one Morse poll worker said. “Much busier than usual.”

The snow situation turned out to be pretty minor, with roads more wet than slick.

Though the National Weather Service promised 3 to 5, and then 2 to 4 inches total accumulation today, it seems we're down to almost zero. Here's the latest for tonight: "Mostly clear, with a low around 19. West wind 8 to 13 mph." Check here for updates.

So no the NWS has taken away their previous 2-4 inch accumulation prediction and offered this for tonight: "Mostly clear, with a low around 19. West wind 8 to 13 mph."
