Thursday several Cambridge businesses shut their doors due to a sudden flurry of snowfall in Massachusetts. According to a public information statement issued by the National Weather Service, Cambridge itself received a snowfall of 9.5 inches. The public schools of Cambridge canceled classes on Thursday because of the snowfall, but schools reopened Friday morning. The city issued an emergency parking ban Wednesday evening, which prevented drivers from parking on public streets; instead drivers were encouraged to park at indoor garages across the city. While the Public Works department clears the snow and ice on Cambridge roads, private citizens are responsible for clearing their personal driveways and sidewalks. Shovelers are able to obtain free street salt upon request at locations including fire stations and public libraries. More information is available online  through the City of Cambridge's Snow Center.
