More snow falls in Worcester the day before spring
WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- The sound of scraping of shovels against the pavement -- winter’s soundtrack plays more like a broken record.
Winter refuses to loosen its grip on Worcester. On Tuesday, the town was sprinkled with a few more inches of snow just to let everyone know spring isn’t here just yet.
“We were due for it because, you know, past years we haven’t been getting that much so we were doing for it,” said Woodrow Adams, who is looking forward to spring.
A normal winter usually brings about 65 inches of snow, but after Tuesday’s storm Worcester has been clobbered with 107 inches -- making it the fifth snowiest season on record.
The blizzard and the storm on March 8 account for nearly a third of Worcester’s season total.
“The weekend before was what, 24 inches, close to it…This is more heavy. The other one was lighter,” said Jean Rosinvil, who is sick of shoveling.
The snow is heavy, but the latest storm didn’t pack as powerful a punch.
Most of the snow fell overnight, leaving the roads clear for the Department of Public Works plow convoys to get out and hit the streets before commuters got on the roads.
