The first Tuesday of December brought with it the first snowstorm of the season.
Snow fell throughout the morning Tuesday, December 3, and into the afternoon, making for a slow, slippery morning commute.
Travel was slow, but school buses still made their appointed rounds in most Upper Cape towns, including Bourne. The only Upper Cape town to cancel classes was Sandwich.
As of Tuesday morning, Bourne police reported no weather-related incidents. Sergeant John R. Stowe Jr. said there were no reports of any accidents overnight and into the morning.
"I'll take it quiet like this," Sgt. Stowe said.
Also Tuesday morning, Bourne Department of Public Works Superintendent George M. Sala said road cleanup was “going well so far.” Mr. Sala said crews were out at 6 AM, pre-treating the roads with sand.
“We’ve had no problems or complaints,” he said.
He added that he was also not aware of any weather-related accidents.
