Snow grinds traffic to a halt -- except for ATV joy riders


The forecast for today called for cloudy weather in the morning, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high temperature near 32, with west winds 9 to 13 mph.

Tonight, the temperature is expected to drop to a low around 22, with southwesterly winds of 6 to 8 mph.

At the Lawrence Municipal Airport in North Andover, the airport’s manager Michael Miller reported that his three-man plow crew had worked a noon to midnight shift, but one less rigorous than the Saturday to Sunday snow storm.

“I’m sure people on the roadway thought it was a nightmare because the storm really hit its stride during the rush hour,” Miller said in an interview last night.

“But the weekend storm was a lot more difficult for us. We’ve got six inches on the ground already and it’s still snowing,” Miller said shortly before 10 p.m.

“We have an Angel Flight departing in the morning (today), so we need to stay on top of it. And we’ve been right on it since it started snowing today,” he said.
