Mailman Johnny Lane makes his rounds on Union Street Friday afternoon during the start of a winter blizzard ...

Motorists looking for gas at the Holliston Mobil Station in the center of town were out of luck early in the blizzard Friday just past 1 p.m.

Highway crews were on the ready Friday afternoon with slippery roads reported ...

1:57 p.m. - A single car crash was reported at the intersection of Adams Street and Gorwin Drive Extension with property damage.

2:14 p.m. - Reported vehicle off the road at 201 Summer Street - gone on arrival

2:54 p.m. Police responded to a home for an abandoned 911 call. A party at the home offered officers the "use of his sled dogs" if they were needed. You can't make this stuff up, folks.

4:05 p.m. All personal vehicles are to be off the road:

4:35 p.m. Reported disabled motor vehicle near Holliston/Ashland line. Vehicle located in Ashland and involved in a minor motor vehicle crash.

8:47 p.m. Cruiser stuck in snow in west end of town

This system passed through Wisconsin on it's way to the east of the most magnificent snow storms we have ever had, breathtaking beauty, this morning we had ice fog, never heard of it but oh my the beauty, all of the trees were covered with snow with the fog gently caressing everything. By the way looks like we are sending another storm your way...make a big batch of chili and some home made bread and take lots of pictures. Life Is Good!

I love the picture of the mailman on Union St. It should be submitted in a photo contest.

Unbelievable! Our two daily newspapers were delivered to the back door this morning, as usual. My problem was opening the door to retrieve them. Incredible.
