Blizzard 2013: Cleaning Up Dedham After the Storm
It's been a struggle for the town to remove the snow because there's no place to put it.
According to The National Weather Service, the Blizzard of 2013 left Dedham with 22 inches of snow. And the town is unsure about the time frame for cleanup.
"It's difficult to predict at this time," Town Administrator Bill Keegan said. "Our crews are trying to remove a lot if snow now because there is no place to put it."
Residents were expressing their frustrations on Facebook and Twitter because there are still some hazardous driving conditions like Washington Street, near Dedham Square.
"Folks will have to be patient as everyone does the best they can," he said.
In the meantime, plow trucks are still circling the town to clear as much of the snow as possible. But how to dispose of the snow will remain to be the big issue. Some are hoping that the rain on Monday will help.
But Keegan was happy to see how quickly NSTAR was able to respond to the power outages.
"Dedham's power situation is in great shape compared to many communities," Keegan said.
During the blizzard, about 300 homes lost power. As of 5:00 a.m. on Monday that number was brought down to 14.
