In Western MA where I live they were calling from 6 to 10, people were rushing to get out of the mall by 6pm...general craziness. About midnight it hadn't started yet and I had commented to my wife "it seems too cold and dry"
Woke up in the morning and had a grand total of.... 1.5 inches. Sorely disappointed. Grrr..
The amounts grew as you headed farther East and/or South A friend of mine in Webster, MA (sorta next to RI) got about 10" he said.
