Snow and Gusty Wind on Tuesday - Poor Travel Conditions Expected

A major Nor'easter now developing off the mid Atlantic coast will put eastern New York and western New England on its western side through Tuesday.  Snow will become steadier from SE to NW across the region after midnight and towards daybreak Tuesday with snowfall of varying intensity through Tuesday evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 20-30 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions into Tuesday night. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 4"-10" are expected with higher amounts across western New England.

Cold cash just keeps washing in from ALS challenge

Big splash, cold cash.

Since late July, the "ice bucket challenge" of donate-or-get-doused has raised about $9 million a week for those with the condition better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. As of Wednesday, the total given to the ALS Association was approaching $100 million.

An association spokeswoman, Carrie Munk, says the trick now is figuring out how to spend the windfall wisely. Research, care and advocacy are the group's three main missions.

"We realize there are responsibilities that come with being good stewards of these dollars," she says.

In the last month, everyone from Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to former President George W. Bush has been doused. The Internet and airwaves are awash in videos of people taking the challenge -- even if they intend to write the check.
