WOONSOCKET â€” If you liked yesterdayâ€™s weather, youâ€™re going to love what Mother Nature has in store for us today.
The latest in a series of unusually fierce winter storms turns out to be a double-dipper. After dumping four to seven inches of snow across the Blackstone Valley Tuesday, a second wave â€” a hard-to-predict combo of snow, sleet and rain â€” is expected to whack the region by nightfall.
CUMBERLAND â€” Another snow day, another lost practice session for Cumberland Highâ€™s wrestling team.

But my guys know what to do. They are pretty good about it. Some of them will go over to Northeast Elite (a wrestling school in Woonsocket) and get a workout in. We canâ€™t practice at the school because if school is cancelled, itâ€™s over. You canâ€™t practice.â€ť
