BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – More than a week after Hurricane Sandy left roughly 1,500 residents without power, Bronxville was left recovering from Nor'easter Athena's 40 mph wind gusts.
While many residents said the nor'easter that hit Bronxville Wednesday night didn't faze them, it resulted in a delayed school opening and as many as 60 storm related power outages by Thursday morning, said Bronxville Mayor Mary Marvin.
Bronxville resident Betty Barberio said that while the storm wasn't a big deal, her heart goes out to everyone who lost power.
"I'm just so lucky to be here without having to worry about anything serious," said Barberio. "We didn't get much snow, the wind wasn't that bad and I didn't lose power. But I know other residents did, and I know that people haven't even recovered from the hurricane yet. Those are the people who the storm impacted most."
Long Island resident Deidre Ayres, who works in Bronxville, said the snow was an inconvenience.
"We just got over the hurricane and not having power for a week, so this snow is nothing for me," said Ayres. "We didn't even get that much snow, it was more just dangerous in the moment. My normal train was canceled so it just made my commute much longer. Enough with the weather already alright!"
Bronxville officials request that any resident still experiencing a power outage to immediately notify Con Ed at 1-800-75CONED.
