BEACON -

DPW crews were busy plowing and salting areas in Dutchess County Tuesday as the snow came down at a steady clip.

Some Fishkill business owners didn’t take any chances and decided to close up shop early due to the weather.

Many residents in nearby Beacon didn’t let the 2 to 3 inches of snow stop them from their regular routines.

Wappingers Falls saw about 4 to 5 inches of snow on the ground, but water was flowing smoothly in the actual falls.

Officials warned residents to drive slow on the roads due to ice.
