Storm Coats Watertown with a Wet Layer of Snow

The October Nor'easter largely spared Watertown from heavy snow and damage.

Snow from the October Nor'easter started falling just before nightfall, and fell most of the night, leaving a layer of wet slushy snow across Watertown, about 3 inches deep.

Public Works, fire and police personnel responded to reports of tree limbs down Saturday night, including on Standish Road and Cypress Street.

A few Watertown residents had no power as of 8 a.m. According to NSTAR officials, 13 customers had power outages, or 0.1 percent of the customers in town. Towns on the Cape had more than 90 percent outages and Lexington had about half its customers without power.

Great fun plowing Pleasant Street with all the raised manhole covers. Wonder if road work will get done before Easter.
