QUINCY — By Saturday afternoon, the charm of the snow was long gone. Their homes dark, residents were cold and storm weary. But mostly just cold.
Quincy was one of the worst-hit communities around the state. On Friday between 10 p.m. and midnight, the storm knocked out power to nearly every one of the 92,000 residents in one of the state’s largest cities, according to city and National Grid officials. Emergency generators kept the lights on at Quincy Medical Center and nursing homes.
