Just one day before Halloween, more than an inch of snow enveloped Emerson’s campus for the first time this season. The white layer covered the Norman Lear statue, the sidewalk by the dining hall, and the grass at Boston Common. Boston has not seen snow in October for two years.
Students and Boston residents alike went outside to celebrate the winter weather in coats and masks as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the city. Dogs rolled around in the snow, and people sled down the hills by The Soldiers and Sailors Monument.
The National Weather Service reported that it began snowing as early as 7 a.m. in the morning and will continue to fall until 4 p.m.
