Video: Where's the Snow Go, Joe?

Towns take advantage of any open space for a snow depot. In Swampscott it at Phillips Park.

Where once a soundstage stood, stand mountains of snow.

This video is from Wednesday afternoon at Phillips Park in the back corner where Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 filming was based last July.

The pool scene becomes a snow scene.

Swampscott Department of Public Works crews are depositing snow scooped from dead-ends, snowbanks and sidewalks in the Phillips corner near the walking path to Phillips Beach.

Town Administrator Tom Younger says that towns and cities that are largely built out in Massachusetts take advantage of open space where they can find it to dump snow.

These include landfills, DPW yards and, in Swampscott's case, the rear right corner of Phillips Park.

I would like to comment that the men and women associated with our DPW did an outstanding job during the Blizzard of 2013. While residents snuggled in their warm homes, these employees worked around the clock. Restrained by limited manpower and equipment, unlike the days of more than 60 workers and large snow removing equipment. They were able to get the job done, getting Swampscott back to normal. Gino and crew, job well done!
