Northeast residents are getting back to their weekday routines as electricity returns and highways reopen following the massive snowstorm that had millions digging out.

But the routine of some New Englanders will be disrupted by school and workplace closings, while residents of New York's Long Island anticipate the reopening of a major roadway, the Long Island Expressway.

There's also a new worry for some: the danger of roof collapses as rain and warmer weather melts snow.

The storm that slammed into the region with up to 3 feet of snow was blamed for at least 15 deaths in the Northeast and Canada. By early Monday, power outages had dropped to 149,970 — most of them in Massachusetts.
