The Millicent Library is framed by the entrance arch to the Fairhaven Town Hall at 9AM, Wednesday, January 22, 2014.The area was fully prepared as a second nor'easter of the year impacted the region dumping 8" of snow in Fairhaven and 9.5" in Acushnet, Wednesday. Local schools were closed and some businesses had delayed openings. The area faired well with the light textured snow and it was easy to shovel and plow. Most of the roadways were cleared by daybreak with a few minor accidents reported. A wind gust of 33 MPH was recorded at The West Island Weather Station while areas further down the Cape experienced gusts to 50+ MPH with significantly more snow of 15 inches or more. The storm headed out to sea later in the morning. The cold arctic air left in place is expected to last into the weekend with yet another potential snow event being discussed for Monday.
