Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

We're neck and neck with Buffalo and Erie!

In the annual "Snowglobe" race, Worcester, as of last night's update, is now neck-and-neck with Buffalo, NY and Erie, PA in the race for snowiest city (above 100,000):

We got about three inches overnight here and it started snowing again at about 7 am. To give some perspective, here is the Lodge sign this morning: 

We all keep talking about the snow, but don't underestimate the cold: at 8 am here it is 11 degrees and steady, and there's a fairly constant 1-5 MPH wind. 

The humidity is 69 percent and steady. 
The barometer is 29.91 inches of mercury and steady. 
Hikers note: it may take us a bit longer to get the parking area open after this one, as we are down a snowblower operator.
