    New England is on a roll, getting ready to go three for three on snowstorms. Bracing for its third blizzard in three weekends, governments in the region had crews working hard Saturday morning—salting roads and trimming trees in preparation for what has the potential to be another historic storm. The snow and sleet scheduled to hammer the northeast, blanketed the Midwest earlier in the week. Winter storm warnings are in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening, with up to a foot of snow in the forecast for some areas. Hopefully after strike three, winter will be on its way out.
