Public Works Crews Putting Salt Back



    About 1-3 inches expected, but storm turning out to be a dud (Published Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014)

    (NECN: Scot Yount: Weston, Mass.) - The trucks were loaded up with salt early Saturday, but by the time dawn broke, some trucks were returning to the Weston, Mass. public works facilities and putting the salt back.

    In this nearly snowless winter in southern New England, snow-fighting equipment has gone largely unused. And it may be that way again as the storm is hovering off the coast.

    Some New Englanders are welcoming even a minor snowstorm, but others wish it would stay away, especially after the record snowfalls of winter 2010-11.
