Somers residents received about a foot of snow over last weekend in what was billed as one of the top-five blizzards to hit the Big Apple just 45 miles south of here. 

Unfortunately, events were cancelled for the day, including the Somers Education Foundation’s “Blackjack Ball,” which will now be held on Saturday, March 19, at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor in Mahopac.

The total shut-down of activity in Northern Westchester didn’t stop many families from enjoying the first snowfall of the year.
