At 5 am, the Massachusetts Trial Court announced that all courts in the Commonwealth will be closed today due to the major snowstorm that struck the region overnight. Since the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds is located within the Superior Courthouse in Lowell, it too is closed for the day. The announcement that Lowell Public Schools were closed was made last night at 7 pm. All other schools in the area are also closed.
Also at 5 am, there was already about 5 inches of snow on the ground with heavy snow continuing to fall. The weather forecasters on TV are telling us that the storm and the snow will continue throughout the day. I’ll update this post periodically through the day with more observations. Please share your experiences with today’s storm in the comments section.
