    "We've been predicting all week that this was not going to be a big storm, but would affect the Friday evening rush hour and stick because it's so cold. It behaved almost exactly like it was supposed to," said NBC10 Chief Meteorologist Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz.

    Drivers across the region faced a slower commute and accidents were reported on major roadways. The major highways were okay after the snow moved out, but side streets around the region were slippery.

    The best newsmay be that you won't break your back or hurt your heart shoveling.

    "It's very unusual snow for this part of the country. It's more like what you see in Colorado or Utah. People will be able to brush it off their cars with their hands and sweep it off the driveway with a brook," Schwartz said.
