The ferocious mid-winter weather that has pummeled the Vineyard with snow, ice, wind and frigid temperatures continued without letup over the weekend as another blizzard roared through. The storm began late Saturday and lasted all day Sunday.

Ferry service to the Island was expected to resume slowly on Monday, the Presidents Day holiday, although early morning ferries were canceled. All service will be running on a trip-by-trip basis, the Steamship Authority said. The storm left strong winds and bitterly cold temperatures in its wake. Blowing, drifting snow continued to cover roadways as highway crews and private contractors worked around the clock to keep main thoroughfares plowed and sanded.

The town of Edgartown has shut down Katama Road at Edgartown Bay Road. "Plows are trying to keep up with drifting snow," the town said in an annoucement early Monday, advising residents that roads are still hazardous and asking them to refrain from driving if possible.

The series of storms that have brought record snow to Boston and other parts of eastern Massachusetts began with a Jan. 27 blizzard that dumped 20-plus inches of snow and raked the Island with hurricane-force winds. The February blizzard this past weekend saw a response that by now is familiar: community events were canceled and Islanders hunkered down to wait out the latest blast of winter.

Monday is a national holiday and government offices and schools are closed.
