First significant snowfall blankets region

December 10, 2013

While Tuesday’s snow was hardly the stuff of legend, it was a reminder winter is here and that bigger and more powerful storms may be just around just around the corner, including one that could hit the region as early as this weekend.

With the Greater Woonsocket area experiencing its first snowfall of the season — inland areas over southern Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts were expected to see snow totals in the 1-to-3 inch range – folks suddenly found themselves in winter weather mode yesterday dealing with just enough snow to make driveways slippery.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Cumberland, North Smithfield, Burrillville aim to take major step forward this winter

December 10, 2013

Deb Engels seemed remarkably upbeat as she readied her Cumberland High girls' hoop team for a two-plus hour practice at the Wellness Center on Monday afternoon.

You'd figure her mind-set instead would border on concern, given the fact she'll return only one starter – her daughter Kate – from a team that closed last year's Division I-North campaign with a dismal 4-14 mark.

The league should be highly-competitive once more, but Engels expects this season's crop to be more than capable of doing some damage.
