Spring snow hits parts of Southern New England

Posted: Updated:
NEW BEDFORD, Mass. -

A surprise eight-inch snowfall on Thursday night had residents in New Bedford wondering if spring will ever come.

The heavy, wet snow was plastered on picnic tables, on lawns and rooftops.

"It's pretty, but I think we've all just about had enough," said Maria Ellis of New Bedford.

More than nine inches of snow fell in Harwich on the Cape, but only four inches in Newport, two inches in Swansea and not much elsewhere.

"It was a real winter, a real New England winter. If you don't like this winter, I don't know, I guess you go to Florida," said Jo Clermont of New Bedford.

With strong springtime sun on Friday, there was lots of melting going on. The streets were not an issue.

"(The roads) were absolutely fine," said Meaghan Fowler, who was surprised about the amount of snow. "I thought we were only going to get like three inches."

Fowler said at this time last year she was out in a bikini. Not this year.

"Instead a white winter coat," she said.
