After yet another coating of snow, the townspeople have had their fill of the white stuff this winter.
It's too early for April Fools jokes, but Mother Nature wasn't kidding on Monday morning as more snow fell in the Stoneham area. While it may not have been a substantial amount, the fact residents had to clean off their cars and shovel the fresh coat of snow from their driveways and walkways was a routine they didn't want to get back into. Amanda Chauncy, a recent Salve Regina University graduate, was not in the mood to see snowflakes out her window on Monday morning. “It was very depressing to see the temperature drop and see snow on the ground after the sun and beautiful weather last week,” Chauncy said. Chauncy wants to fast-forward from February into the warmer months where she can be on the ocean under the sun. “I just want it to be …

A day in the life of a Stoneham landscaping company as it digs out local businesses and private clients after the first snowstorm of winter hit last week.
On Dec. 26, just one day removed from Christmas, the entire eastern seaboard was pummeled by a nor'easter which brought gusty winds and plenty of snow. The general chaos that accompanies a winter tempest of this size was as overwhelming as the snow itself. Holiday travelers were stranded as flights across the board were cancelled. Intense snowfall created whiteout conditions on roadways causing police across the state to respond to countless automobile accidents and spin-outs. The worst part of the storm hit the Stoneham area between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. on Dec. 27, dumping a total of about 15 inches in Stoneham and its surrounding communities, according to reports by the National Weather Service.
