PHILADELPHIA – Just days after the official end of one of the snowiest winters on record, another storm began its trek up the Interstate 95 corridor Tuesday, dropping flurries in Washington and Philadelphia on its way to Cape Cod, which was expected to see some of the highest snow totals.
A blizzard warning was in effect for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket beginning today after midnight. Forecasters warned of wind gusts as high as 70 mph with near-zero visibility at times, including during this morning’s rush hour.
As much as 10 inches of snow could fall there.
After a winter of back-to-back-to-back snowstorms, most Americans were ready to embrace spring. But the feeling of relief turned to dismay Tuesday when it became clear winter wasn’t going away quietly.
“I’m ready for summer,” 25-year-old nurse Krystina Smith declared Tuesday as she rode the subway in Boston. “It’s April. When will it stop? I have to work tomorrow, and I don’t want to have to shovel again before I go in.”
The National Weather Service insisted the timing, however unwelcome, wasn’t out of the ordinary.
