Registry reopens after blizzard

The Middlesex North Registry of Deeds reopened this morning after being closed for two days due to the recent blizzard.  Snow began falling in Lowell on Monday night and continued through to Tuesday night, leaving 33 inches by the time it ended.

Because the registry is located in the Superior Courthouse in Lowell, when the court is closed, we must also close.  By late Monday afternoon, the Administrative Office of the Trial Court had announced that all courts in the Commonwealth would be closed all day Tuesday and on Tuesday night, it announced that all courts but those in the four western counties (Berkshire, Hamden, Hampshire and Franklin) would remain closed on Wednesday.  As far as I can tell, all courts are open today.

School was cancelled in Lowell today, however, which made it easier to get to work.  Parking is a challenge, especially since the city of Lowell's onstreet parking ban remains in effect.

More snow is forecast for this evening, but it seems like it will be more of a nuisance than an impediment.
