Newton native lives through Winter Storm Nemo
Odem digs out from more than 2 feet of snow
Newton native Laurie Odem has seen her fair share of blizzards, but few can probably compare to what she experienced over the weekend. If anything, she’d really like it if Nemo — Winter Storm Nemo, that is — got lost.
“As I drive around town, many sections are without power, trees are down, plows are everywhere,” the Cranston, R.I., resident said Sunday evening. “I’m thankful that I have not lost power and am able to help my friends.”
More than two feet of snow eventually fell Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon, all but shutting down the entire state. But before the storm came, Odem said she listened skeptically to news reports.
