Stories From the Storm

Share your story about the blizzard so far.

With about 2 feet of snow, or more depending on the drifts, outside your door this morning, what are you seeing, what are you hearing in Peabody?

Is anyone out tackling the herculean chore of shoveling this snow yet? What's the scene look like on your street? Did you end up parking your car at one of the schools -- were you able to dig it out again by 8 a.m. this morning?

Share your thoughts and comments below.

Here are what some Peabody Patch readers had to say via Facebook this morning:

  • David Ellefsen: "We are trapped inside the house...can't open the outside door!"
  • Denise O'Brien: "Can't open my door to give you pics. The drifts have blown snow over 5 feet. You can't even tell I have a deck. My car is completely covered. I may have to go out a window."
  • Jennifer Serino: "I have lived in Peabs for 37 years...I can't remember losing power for a significant amount of time...The lights flickered a little last night in So. Peabs..but so far so good!!"

School on Monday?

I would imagine so, haven't seen or heard any indication there wouldn't be. Nothing in the forecast for tomorrow, so in all likelihood the schools will be clear for Monday morning.

I have to echo that. We are SO LUCKY in Peabody having our own light plant. When the hurricane came they were unbelievable in how they fixed a lot of us who were out. I think our lights blinked once -- and only once -- during one heck of a blizzard last night. So... THANK YOU PMLP!!

I think this might have a lot to do with the condition of the sidewalks. I know at least one local city said something about the sidewalks getting done on Monday (don't know which one, picked it up on the scanner). If they are in good shape, then I'll bet they're on!

Also have to get crews to clean out lots, enterances etc. Not to mention shovel the snow off the roofs and provide safe bus stops....I'm saying 50-50 chance of school being cancelled.
