Heavy, wet snow zaps power to tens of thousands in Capital Region
The very heavy, wet and gloppy snow that fell in parts of the Capital Region late Monday night and early Tuesday morning wreaked havoc on trees and power lines.
At one point, nearly 60,000 customers in the Capital Region were without power – possibly more. That included more than 20,000 customers in Saratoga County alone.
In Guilderland, NewsChannel 13 found crews repairing a broken utility pole in the area of Church Road, Johnston Road and Harmony Hill Road.
While some people across the area have power back, others remained in the dark as of lunchtime on Tuesday.

It’s snowing in April. Earlier I spoke to David who was shoveling snow in Johnstown. This man is 72-years-old and says he has never seen anything like this before. pic.twitter.com/bbzFfgjSMW— Jonathan Hunter (@hunter_jonathan) April 19, 2022
