BETHLEHEM, Pa. - When all was said and done, Tuesday’s snowstorm delivered.

The storm that had forecasters going back to the drawing board Sunday and Monday packed a punch that brought the heaviest snowfall to the Lehigh Valley in three years.

Schools closed, utility companies scrambled to restore power to thousands, and folks began digging out from snow that began around 4 a.m. Tuesday and left the region for the most part by 11 a.m.

Some of the totals reported were the most since 22.4 inches was recorded at Lehigh Valley International Airport on Feb. 1, 2021. Officially, the airport reported 9.1 inches at 11 a.m.
