HYANNIS, Mass. — A seagull was keeping an eye on Hyannis Harbor shaking the gently falling snow from its head.
The picture-perfect scene on Cape Cod greeted the Lady Martha ferry just back from a run to the Vineyard.
“It was really good. It’s the small boat I haven’t been on that in a long time,” said Nicole Lavigne from Hyannis.
Lavigne left the island a day early to beat the weather. “Tomorrow is supposed to be bad so I came today instead of tomorrow,” said Lavigne.
Fellow passenger Jason Kelley travels to and from the Vineyard daily for work but normally, not by boat.
“We do this every day. Usually we fly. No flights today,” said Kelley.
The snow was on and off most of Thursday afternoon. The steady snow along Route 3 on the South Shore barely covered well-treated roads. Plows and salt trucks kept roads pretty clear.
That was good news to Kelly Young who just drove up from the Cape.
“I just hope that people drive safe on the roads, not going too fast and they have their gas,” said Young.
The roads overall were in good shape according to delivery driver Kevin Concannon.
“They’ve actually been pretty good. I’ve been driving for about 2 hours and nothing bad,” said Concannon.
Concannon delivers food and he just hopes plow crews keep it that way.
‘Yeah completely, I’ve got work early in the morning tomorrow so it’s not going to be fun,” said Concannon.
