South Shore: Nor’easter brings wind, rain, snow and headaches

Massachusetts has emerged relatively unscathed from an early winter storm that struck the region.

The storm Wednesday and into Thursday dropped more than nine inches of snow in some areas of the state, forced some schools to delay opening, and according to state police, caused numerous spinouts and minor accidents on the state’s major roads.

One person died in a crash on Route 28 in on Thursday morning, and although there were high winds and rain at the time, it was too soon to say it was weather related.

The snow also slowed the morning commute.

Spotters for the National Weather Service spotted unofficial snowfall totals of 9.3 inches in Southbridge, 7.5 inches in Monson and six inches in Foxborough.

The state’s major utilities reported some  power outages.
