Deval Patrick, helped out, they said. “We found pretty much everyone abiding by the ban,” said Danvers Police Lt. Dana Milne. On Twitter, several tweets lauded the plowing of Danvers streets. Andrew Gallione noted that Danvers streets were clear and there was still snow on Beverly roads. Mary Beth Perry tweeted that Danvers roads were "perfection" and called them the best on the …

The rationale? According to the Weather Channel, names raise awareness, make it easier to follow a weather…
