South Pleasant Street overlook
If you had to travel anywhere this morning give thanks to Amherst Police, Fire, Dispatch and DPW highway and tree crews as they joined forces to deal with the aftermath of our first major storm of the season.
Amherst town center 7:05 AM
And for many of them, it was an "all nighter" of above and beyond the call of duty grunt work
Main Street looking east 7:10 AM
The heavy snow brought down trees and large limbs all over town, in many cases taking utility lines with them, although the power outages never came to close to the total devastation of the Halloween 2011 Snowmageddon storm.
Tree limb into house Farview Way, North Amherst
Tree limb Snell Street took out streetlight
A downed tree on Potwine Lane knocked out power to less than 200 homes in South Amherst and a huge limb crashed into a house on Farview Way, but did not cause any injuries or serious structural damage.
#Amherst town offices to close at noon because of the storm (will anyone notice?). Does not include APD, AFD, or DPW of course.
