Boston lifts snow emergency as New England digs out

Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino lifted a city snow emergency Thursday, one day after blizzard conditions pounded the city and created hazardous travel conditions across New England.

Hundreds of schools remained closed in Massachusetts as crews continued to clear snow and to salt icy roadways, according to state Emergency Management spokesman Peter Judge.

The state's 250 National Guardsmen - who were mobilized as a precautionary measure on Wednesday - were relieved from duty by Thursday morning, Judge said.
