The tropical storm landed in Canton one year ago today.
It's been one year to the day that Tropical Storm Irene, which initially threatened the east coast as a hurricane, walloped the northeast, including Canton. Many Canton residents could bee seen cleaning up the day after the storm, which brought heavy winds and rain, causing downed trees across town, as well as power outages, home damage and street closures. Today, we're wondering what Canton residents remember about the storm. Were you affected by Irene? Or did you think it was just another typical tropical storm for Massachusetts?

The National Weather Service says there have only been a few snowless Decembers–and the last one was in 1973.
This December will likely go down as one of the least snowy in history, according to the National Weather Service. A barely-visible tarce of snow has been reported since the start of the month in the Boston area. The National Weather Service told the Globe that's only happened five times before in recorded weather history and the last time was 1973. It seems like a natural coda to an unseasonably warm fall–ranked as one of warmest on record by the National Weather Service. Similarly, December is running about over 5 degrees above normal, the Globe reports. For the record, the Farmer's Almanac has predicted a mild, wet–not snowy–winter in New England. But the forecast for the rest of this week does have a chance of snow on Thursday night …
