LANSINGBURGH – It's neighbor negotiation at the corner of 7th Ave. & 112th St. One man guiding a snowblower comes four houses down to help another man, Joe Riley, who just had shoulder surgery. Meantime, that Riley's wife is cleaning off a car for their tenant.

Across the street Lindsay Schoonmaker, a nurse, already had a scheduled day off. She was shoveling her front walk so she and her family could make a trip to Bennington to get their taxes done.

So goes it during the latest snow storm in the Capital Region.

First Responders were dealing with cars off the road near Bella Napoli bakery on River Street and across the river a Colonie Police Officer was helping a driver who had slid off the road.

In Watervliet, Police Chief Mark Spain took to Facebook to first warn about the heavy, wet snow and then that there could be a power outage depending on how the temperature fluctuates throughout the day.

Snow emergencies were declared in some locales. Travelers coming or going from Albany International Airport are urged to check the status of their flight as the storm has impacted air travel. Amtrak riders can check for delays here.
