Snowflakes were still falling as the sun set Tuesday on the biggest winter storm of the season, if not the “historic” storm that had been predicted. The total amount of snowfall in East Greenwich was 17 to 18 inches.
The schools will remain closed for a second day Wednesday, Supt. Victor Mercurio announced early Tuesday afternoon.
Town offices will reopen at noon on Wednesday. Trash collection resumes Wednesday (and recycle is ON), delayed a day through the rest of the week.
Town snow plows continued to clear streets into Tuesday night, having begun snow removal early Monday.
“Shout out to EG Dept of Public Works doing and amazing job plowing!!” wrote Chris Imbrigs on the EG News Facebook page.
