Stoughton wins snowfall ‘jackpot’ with 30.9 inches

STOUGHTON, Mass. — Additional shoveling and plowing may not be much of a prize. But Stoughton hit the jackpot when it comes to snowfall totals with 30.9 inches of snow, according to Boston 25 News meteorologist Shiri Spear.

By 5:30 a.m., Sunday morning, giant mounds of snow greater than six feet high could be seen at just about every corner of the downtown. Some sidewalks were clear, while others remain packed deep with snow.

At the intersection of Route 138 and Route 27, two major roads running through town were plowed down to the pavement. Many of the side roads were not yet fully clear.

Plow crews continued to work through the night, clearing what they can for the start of the day, Sunday. The snow is piled so high on one of the sidewalks in the town center that it nearly blocks the entire “Welcome to Stoughton” sign near Washington Street.

According to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, there were no listed power outages for Stoughton by 5:30 a.m. Sunday.
