Snow keeps piling up

Providence, RI – One more inch of snow will make this the third snowiest January on record in Rhode Island, and some residents are saying enough is enough.

But not Bob Desforges. He's retired now, so he looks forward to using his snow blower every time there's a storm.

"Everybody's whining and whining about the storms," he says. "I love it. I wanted two feet. I wanted to show New England people this is what snow's all about."

With around 31 inches of snow so far, this month is currently the 4th snowiest January in the Ocean state. The record belongs to the first month of 1996, with 37 inches of accumulation.
