Don’t be fooled by the recent blush of September-like weather; New Englanders know winter is on  the way.

In this vein, Rhode Island’s Congressional delegation announced today that the state is getting an additional $2.4 million in federal money from the Federal  Emergency Management Agency to help defray cleanup costs from last winter’s big January snowstorm.

The money will help with road damage caused by the severe snowstorm that occurred between January 26th to January 28th. Governor Gina Raimondo requested the federal disaster assistance, which was approved by President Barack Obama after intervention from  Sens. Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and Reps. Jim Langevin and David Cicilline.
