The snow storm picked in surprising intensity Friday morning, dumping more than a foot of snow on Peabody, prompting the cancellation of school.
Peabody was inundated again with more than a foot of snow in the latest storm to slam the region Friday morning. Tallies from the National Weather Service were around 13 inches, while numerous readers across the city reported measuring between 15 and 17 inches of snow. The Tanner City, along with the rest of the North Shore, was caught off-guard by the severity of the snowstorm, as forecast predictions right through Thursday still only called for 4-6 inches of snow at most. Public Services Director Bob Langley said the storm turned out to be a surprisingly tough one to deal with. He said it wasn't until Friday morning, even around 7:30, that the heaviest snow started falling. "It just kept snowing and snowing," he said. "There were some …

The true test of the city's new emergency notification and parking ban system, however, will happen when Peabody gets hit with a big snow storm, says Public Services Director Bob Langley.
Public Services Director Bob Langley says the cleanup from Wednesday's storm, which dropped a few inches of snow, went relatively smoothly, although it didn't appear that way earlier in the morning. Peabody Patch received several comments from readers, wondering why the city had instituted an emergency parking ban the night before and then seemingly hadn't been on top of the situation to clear the roads for morning commuters. It also seemed like there was a lack of plow trucks out in operation. Langley said, in fact, that city plow crews did deploy when the storm hit at 5 a.m., but they went to the schools first as the top priority. Unfortunately, rush hour quickly arrived and made it difficult transitioning back to the roads once the …
