Spring snow storm closes school … again
March 23, 2018
A nor’easter on the second day of spring closed Patrick M. Villano School. About 8 inches of snow fell in the Westwood area on March 20, according to the ABC 7 Eyemwitness News website. Weather forecasters, however, predicted more.
“I think that the snow is fun, but it is a little weird how it snowed on the second day of spring,” fifth grader Nicholas Milo said.
“On one side, I feel happy that winter is still here, but on the other side, I feel like spring should be here and we should get warm weather,” sixth grader Zachary Adams said.
This is the third nor’easter to hit the area this winter. It was just a month ago that groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow, calling for six more weeks of winter. Some local people are done with the snow.
“I am ready for spring, and I am ready for no more snow,” sixth-grade teacher Brianna Peros said.
Patrick M. Villano School closed two other times during the school week due to snowy weather this season.
