A nor’easter hit Southern New England Wednesday, marking the second storm in less than a week.

While it started off with rain, it eventually transitioned to heavy, fast falling snow.

In Burrillville, residents were seeing the bulk of the snow storm

“We still are in that band, in that zone. That band that’s always, ‘We knew we were going to get more than anybody else,’” said Rick Lacouture, who lives in Burrillville.

But hearty New Englanders know, when it comes to storms, you’ve got to stock up on two things.

“It’s just tradition. Bread and milk,” Lacouture said.

Some drove through several inches of snow for snack cravings.

“We got a bag of chips, some Gatorade,” said Stacy Pina, who also lives in Burriville.

Others stocked up on a whole lot of ice cream.

While the tropics may seem appealing this time of year, Burrilliville residents said they are here to stay.

“(There’s a) pride and joy in knowing it’s going to get deeper snow, colder winters, frozen ponds,” Lacouture said. “It’s always good.”
