Just like the rest of the region, people in the North Country were spending their Saturday digging out.

Freezing rain and snow began overnight Friday and it quickly turned to a driving snow.

The flakes quickly piled up leaving roads a mess in the area.

North Country residents are used to the fluffy lake effect, but this was heavy wet snow.

Some say the best idea, was to stay inside.

Lewis County was under a travel advisory during the storm.
