HUBBARDSTON, MASS. (WHDH) - Parts of north central Massachusetts saw jackpot snow totals from the nor’easter that moved through New England Tuesday, knocking out power in many spots and prompting cleanup efforts that were ongoing Tuesday night.

Ashby, where some 1,306 customers were without power as of 10:30 p.m., saw at least 29 inches of snow. Hubbardston picked up 31 inches while Princeton and Ashburnham both saw 26 inches.

Snow shoes were a must for anyone looking to traverse the area as near-white out conditions continued.

“It’s heavy, wet – it’s sticking to me, it’s pretty rough,” said Derrick Matthew as he tried to make his way through the nor’easter weather while wearing a traffic vest.

The roads were just as hazardous, with several crashes around the state.

“It’s been pretty tough – a lot of trees down, a lot of wires down,” said Fitchburg Fire Lieutenant Kyle Forrest. “It’s the nature of the business.”

Road conditions were brutal as plows tried to keep up with snowfall that appeared to bring at least 1-2 inches an hour since the early morning.

Residents told 7NEWS they are trying to take the weather in stride, considering March marks the end of winter, not the beginning.

“Hopefully, it’s the end of it and we can move on to spring,” Matthew added.
