FRAMINGHAM, MA - Children's most popular question during the month of December; "How much longer 'til Christmas?" can be answered down to the day, hour, minute and second thanks to NORAD, (The North American Aerospace Defense Command).

For the past couple years the NORAD Santa Tracker website has provided real-time, up to the minute reporting of where Santa is, how many presents he's delivered, and when he may be at your house -- and this year they've added links to see real time video of Santa's delivery route, a virtual "cookie counter", (to see how many snacks St. Nick eats during his ...[read more]


Framingham Blizzard Warning - December 26,2010

Filed under: General Interest by News Staff at 9:29 pm on December 26, 2010

FRAMINGHAM, MA - The Town of Framingham's automated emergency phone system dialed town residents twice today.

The first call was to announce that the National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for today -- from noon on Sunday, December 26, 2010 until Monday, December 27 at 6:00pm, and the town could expect 15" to 20" snow.

Residents were advised that there would be no parking on all artierial roads, (which are posted with red and white signs).  Also, the call advised that although standard odd/even parking was in effect for all non-arterial roads, that residents were advised to seek off street parking as vehicles will be towed if they interfere with plowing operations.

A second call came advising residents that no trash pickup would occur on Monday December 27, 2010, and reminding residents not to place trash or recycling recepticles on the curb (as snow cleanup will likely still be taking place).

Monday would have been a heavy trash day as it will be the first scheduled trash pickup day after Christmas.  In past years, before the phone alert system was in place and used for such notices some residents would put trash out that would not get picked up, and it would either hinder snow plowing -- or barrels were hit by plows causing a mess, (needless to say, the barrels did not fare well).

Trash and recycle schedules are moved up by one day, (e.g.- if your trash was to go out Monday, it should be put out Tuesday instead -- if your regular day is Tuesday, put it out Wednesday, etc).

If you have questions or problems regarding either snow removal or trash pickup, contact the Framingham Department of Public Works, (Highway Division or Solid Waste Division), at (508) 532-6030.

For (non-emergency) issues related to parking during the storm, (vehicle blocking a street, parking questions, etc),  contact the Framingham Police at (508) 872-1212.
