Walpole digs out from over 2 feet of snow
WALPOLE, Mass. (WHDH) -- Walpole digging out after a 2-day storm that dumped nearly two feet of snow, burying homes and cars in a late winter gift from Mother Nature.
“We got about 20 inches at home. We actually went sledding yesterday at the local park. We had a blast, me and my daughter and son,” said a Walpole resident.
It was fun for him, but not everyone was so cheery about the two day storm.
“I think it was just too much, you know, because I thought the snow was already going to end and I think a lot of people had trouble going to work and stuff,” said another Walpole resident.
By this morning, most of the roads were well plowed, but not the sidewalks.
“People come to work walking so I think it’s dangerous for them just to walk along the side you know. I don’t get why people didn’t clear the sidewalks,” said a resident.
It was a busy time for snowplows. Many of them are glad to make the extra money, but don't count Tony Carvalho among them. He and his crew were going full tilt over night and into this morning. He said he’s had enough.
“It’s a royal pain in my neck. I can’t see snow anymore. Thirteen and a half hours yesterday, probably another eight-hour day today,” said Carvalho.
Walpole is frequently a jackpot town for snowfall, seeing 22 inches with the latest snowstorm. Carvalho doesn’t feel lucky to have these record numbers.
“I feel cursed to be honest with you. To be honest, I feel 100 percent cursed. I would much rather be at home right now in bed sleeping,” said Carvalho.
Carvalho is among many who hope this was the last big storm of the season.
