FRAMINGHAM, MA- Having snow even once in October is pretty rare for eastern Massachusetts, but for the second time in three days, snow fell on Framingham.

The small amount of snow which fell on Thursday, (October 27th, 2011), did not accumulate on roadways as the pavement was still warm from the day's moderate temperatures.

Today's snow did accumulate -- enough so that snow removal equipment was called out to plow commercial parking lots and some ...[read more]
