Cleanup underway after storm wallops Weymouth
WEYMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) – Cleanup was already underway in Weymouth Friday night after the town was hit with almost two feet of snow from the drawn-out winter storm that hovered over New England Wednesday into Friday afternoon.
Residents were expecting about three to six inches of snow from the storm, but they ended up receiving upwards of 21 inches.
“It was a lot more than I was expecting. It’s heavy too. I got two snow blowers in the back and I can’t even pick it up because it’s so wet,” one resident said.
The heavy, wet snow caused some drivers to get stuck. Others just tried to make the best of it.
“Twenty inches of snow. I was mad, but I can’t be. It’s my birthday. [I’m spending my birthday] shoveling, it’s great,” said Lisa Tamborella.
It was just last month the area got blasted by the blizzard.
“[This snow] seems to be a little bit heavier. The blizzard, it was light but you had all the winds. You tried to shovel it with a snow blower; it would come up and hit you in the face. This isn’t bad. I’d rather have it a little bit heavier, snow blow nice clean cuts, doesn’t fly up and hit you in the face,” said Richie Doyle.
Crews were out in full force Friday evening removing snow from parking lots and sidewalks.
