The official total from the National Weather Service for Westford for the storm this week was 7 inches, but we here at Patch took it upon ourselves to head around town with a yard stick and see how much snow accumulated. 

Here are the results, with pictures below. Some areas had softer snow than others, the yard stick was placed as deep as possible, but it occasionally shifted. All photos and measurements were taken on Friday afternoon.

Jack Walsh Field - 17 7/8 inches

Brookside Plaza in Nabnasset - 6 inches

Town Common - 7.5 inches

Spinners - 9.5 inches

And from our readers on Facebook

Concord Road - 7 inches

Powers Road - 6 inches

How much snow is in your yard? Take a picture and share it here on Patch!

Going out in today's cold is going above the call of duty! Nice job.

I must admit I enjoy your winter storm reports with the yardstick. Thank you for bearing the cold and putting a smile on my face. :)
