“Middle of April, that’s crazy,” Gardner resident Jonathon Deya told WBZ-TV.
“I remember a couple storms a while ago when my son was a baby. We got 30 inches on April Fools Day. This is kind of normal for us, which isn’t that fun,” said resident Jim Gallant.
It switched from heavy rain to heavy snow on Route 2, passing I-495.
“Usually it’s right in Leominster when you come up the hill. As soon as you get over the hill, it switches from rain to snow all the time,” said Gallant.MORE NEWS: Sephora Launches Same-Day Delivery Service
