WET AND WILD WINTER: A Jeep slogs through a flooded street during the weekend storm. The seem-ingly endless snowfall, mixed with a high tide, created flooding problems and had DPW crews out onthe roads from Friday to Sunday. For more storm photos from readers see page 14.

The snow started fallingon Friday afternoon. And itkept falling, and falling, allthrough the weekend, keepingDPW crews hopping and resi-dents in their homes.“It was a long haul,” saidDPW Director Peter Buttkusof the storm.Plowing crews hit the road
for the rst round of snow re
-moval Friday, then were calledback in around 2 a.m. on Sat-urday, Buttkus said. The crewsworked for nearly 24 straighthours, then were called backSunday night for round three.“It was a brutally longstorm for the employees,” hesaid.Although the accumulationof the storm was only about8-10 inches –– as opposed tothe prior storm, which droppednearly 20 inches of snow onDuxbury –– it was the dura-
tion that made it difcult to
stay ahead of things.“It wasn’t the amount thatwas the issue,” Buttkus. “It just never stopped.”Duxbury’s DPW doesn’thave enough staff to work inshifts, so many of the plowdrivers spent hours upon hoursin their trucks.
