(NECN: Peter Howe, Canton, Mass.) - Like many Greater Boston residents, Harry Falasca and Bob Maffie went to bed Thursday night thinking they might wake up to six inches of snow, maybe twelve by lunchtime Friday.

What they got was a storm that dumped twice as much, and well into the late afternoon Friday, adding an extra 21 to 22 inches -- unofficially -- of wet, heavy snow to a long, deep winter. Canton was one of several communities in a pocket of heavy snowfall that included Walpole, Easton, Stoughton, and one 24-inch report from South Weymouth.

"I couldn't get out of the driveway," Falasca said. "I had to wait and get it plowed. Then I expected to leave work early, and that didn't happen."

Maffie, a junior Little League coach, was looking forward to getting an early jump on spring with the league draft Saturday, only to find "more than we expected" for snow, "and again, the meteorologists got it wrong."

"I'm very tired of it, very tired," Maffie said. "I'm looking forward to grass."
