Be careful out there:  the photo above was taken on Main Street Schroon earlier today by Mickey Planty. There's just enough of the white stuff  in our area to make things very tricky. Early today several people suffered minor injuries after  a bus, transporting 36 SUNY Maritime College students, slid off the road and went over a barrier on Route 28N in the town of Minerva, according to NY State Police.

The students had attended a leadership retreat in Newcomb and were heading to the Bronx. From News Channel 10:

The tour bus was being driven by W&D Tours, of Brooklyn and was southbound on State Route 28N when it slid off the west shoulder of the roadway. The bus toppled over the guide-rail, rolled down an embankment, and came to rest upside down against a tree. 

Heavy snow was falling at the time of the crash, but it’s not known yet if the weather was a factor.

Four of the passengers were transported by rescue from the scene to Glens Falls Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.  The remaining passengers were transported by school bus from the scene to Minerva Central School, for temporary shelter.  Sixteen of the the remaining passengers were later transported to Glens Falls Hospital and treated for minor injuries.

The State Police were assisted at the scene by Minerva, Johnsburg, Indian Lake, Newcomb, and North Warren rescue squads.  The State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit also responded to the scene to assist with the accident investigation.

With just 18 days left until the beginning of Spring, the snow  -- missing for most of the winter -- continues to fall this Thursday morn. So far, the roads are in good shape, thanks to the Highway Department. The most recent forecast from the National Weather Service predicts accumulations up to 7 inches for the Schroon area. If you know about a cancellation, let us know in comments. If you are not in Schroon, enjoy the snow show after the jump:
