Fewer than 70,000 remaining power outages were reported by Friday afternoon after a peak of more than 100,000.

The Maine Department of Transportation treated roads Thursday morning in preparation for the storm and will have up to 350 trucks deployed throughout the state as the storm unfolds, said Ted Talbot, department spokesman. The power company Eversource said about 11,000 New Hampshire homes lost power, but most were restored by Friday morning. That storm canceled flights, knocked out power for thousands and claimed more than two dozen lives on the East Coast.

Naples, Maine, about 30 miles northeast of Portland, received at least 27 inches of snow. Areas under the storm warning should expect heavy snow with accumulations of a foot to 18 inches and winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour and gusts up to 50 miles per hour.

Some in Massachusetts were spared much of the snow, but residents in areas like Fitchburg, Massachusetts will be digging out of 10 inches of snow.

Ski areas, meanwhile, cheered the winter onslaught.
