PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Northern New Englanders are digging out following the first major storm of the season that dropped more than a foot of snow across much of the region.

The storm rolled into northern New England on Wednesday night. Snow was expected to stop falling in the overnight hours into Friday morning.

In Vermont, the National Weather Service says the Sugarbush ski resort got 20 inches of snow, while Killington got 15 inches. Many towns in southern and western Maine received a foot or more.
