Blizzard of '13 in North Reading
The blizzard did not cause much damage.
The blizzard of '13 will always be remembered, but not for power outages and accidents.
As a result of the blizzard, North Reading saw about two feet of snow and residents spent a lot of time shoveling. However, no power outages were reported to us or the police department.
According to police, they only had one hazard call. The call came in on Saturday at 12:11 p.m. A downed tree that took down an electrical service wire, that was connected to a house on Haverhill Street, and caused a utility pole to snap in half. RMLD was able to respond and repair it, police said.
Department of Public Works Director Richard Carnevale said, "The town was prepared for this storm. The DPW employees and our snow plow contractors worked tirelessly Friday, Friday night and Saturday to clear the roads. We still have work to do Sunday to clear parking lots at schools and town buildings, and to plow sidewalks."
