Worcester falls short of snowfall record
WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- Another day, another storm and in Worcester they know the drill well.
“It's a west slushy snow in driveway is really bad to get up. That's the only place i get stuck. The approach is bad. So you just have to you know deal with it,” said one resident.
Some people feel Mother Nature isn't exactly playing fair. This February will go down as one of the snowiest. In Worcester they shoveled, plowed and cleared off more than 40 inches of snow. That's a lot - but not the record. In the 1890's the city saw 55 inches.
“I enjoyed it. We have two young kids. We're outside playing a lot. I have this toy here,” said Tom Valentine who has a plow attached to his four-wheeler.
It's the first winter Tom Valentine has had it and he put it to plenty of good use. He cleared the driveway and it only took him 20 minutes.
“We went with some older people in neighborhood that I tried to take care of,” said Valentine, “on the big storm it took me about 6 hours.
The shortest month of the year packing plenty of winter punch. But with one day left, people are hoping the record is well out of reach.
The best accessory in Worcester this winter was a good pair of boots. Heading out Wednesday - you needed them because it promised to be very slushy and messy.
