A mix of snow and rain made for a few inches of some heavy-to-shovel stuff on the ground. But it was good for snowman making. Big, wet flakes continued to fall, providing a snow globe effect throughout much of Sunday.
“We’ve been looking forward to the snow for some time now. Sledding, snowball fights, hot chocolate, and playing outside with friends is what winter is all about,” said Dan Paige who, along with his wife Cait, took their children Bailey and Finley sledding with friends.
“It’s great. The first snow is always very fun for the kids,” said Lisa Moretti, whose children Macallen and Piper played in the snow with dad Jared Moretti. Macallen pulled Piper around the yard in their sled.
Ken Tortora fired up his snowblower, while his chocolate lab Savannah ran in the snow and watched the traffic go by.
“Now that I don’t work for the highway department I can enjoy it,” said Tortora, who spent 29 years working for the town, sometimes pulling 48-hour shifts clearing snow. “The poor guys working for the highway department have been working all night.”
Tortora held up a can of Snow-Jet snowblower spray and said it is the key to keeping his blower from getting clogged due to the heavy, wet snow.
