Bay State residents revel in Christmas snow
BOSTON (WHDH) -- For those dreaming of a white Christmas - Santa delivered.
Flurries moved through the Bay State early Tuesday, leaving behind a light dusting of snow.
“It was really nice to wake up to everything being white. It was really Christmas-y,” said a girl enjoying the snow.
Adults and kids alike played with a mix of Zamboni ice from the Frog Pond skating rink and the early morning snow.
Gabrielle Garcia, visiting from Miami, said it’s the first time she has seen snow.
“I think it’s one of the best things that’s ever happened to me in my life,” said Garcia.
7News found a couple of people in Braintree who put their presents on hold to go outside and play in the fresh fallen snow.
In the meantime, workers were busy making sure the white Christmas wouldn’t be a slippery one as well. Workers collected sand from the Department of Transportation facility on the Mass Pike in Weston and landscapers pretreated streets in Weymouth.
“This isn’t going to add up, they say, but at least we’ll be able to salt the lots and make it safe to travel,” said a worker.
Homes in Canton were also dusted with snow, an extra treat from Santa for some.
“You get to make snowmen on Christmas if there’s snow,” said a happy, young boy playing outside.
The quickly melting snow is a Christmas present to drivers as well.
