New England faced an old enemy Tuesday: Mother Nature.

She brought a blizzard with her, one that is hardly unprecedented for this often weather-weary region. While the storm didn’t pummel places like New York and New Jersey as much as feared, others remained very much in the thick of it Tuesday morning.

Residents of Barnstable on Cape Cod, for instance, had drifts of up to 3 feet and whiteout conditions, said police Sgt. Mark Cabral. At 11:10 a.m. Tuesday, the National Weather Service reported that Framingham, Massachusetts, had 30 inches of snow, with more than 18 inches having fallen about 20 miles east in Boston.

It’s not just Massachusetts, with nearly 16 inches reported in Portland, Maine; over 21 inches in Hudson, New Hampshire; and 28.5 inches in Orient on New York’s Long Island.
