April Fool's Blizzard of '97

Filed under: General Interest by Randy Harris at 11:49 pm on April 1, 1997

FRAMINGHAM, MA - After an unusually warm winter, with little snow, people were a little amused when, during the last days of March, meteorologists started predicting a blizzard would hit the area.

Just the day before this photo was taken people were seen walking around downtown in t-shirts and shorts, but during the storm it was necessary for plows to pile 8-10 feet of snow in the rotary in Memorial Square to keep roads clear and traffic moving. (photo by Randy Harris)

It wasn't Yankee humor, but the weather forecasters did have the last laugh when rain, then sleet, then snow, snow, and more snow buried the town in 24" of the heavy wet stuff during the record setting single-day storm.

Warm temperatures returned almost immediately after the storm causing such fast melting snow and runoff that the ground vibrated as water pounded over the falls on Winter St. (photo by Randy Harris)

As luck had it, town elections, originally scheduled for April 2nd had already been moved up to April 8th.. this was done because Framingham Public Schools were on vacation for the week, which also lessened the impact of the storm--- school kids were home to enjoy the snow without adding snow days to the end of the school year.
