North Kingstown and Exeter may have gotten off easy two weeks ago when a quick blizzard passed through the area and left a foot of snow that was picked up without much incident but today, Mother Nature returned with quite a vengeance as well over 15 inches of snow fell across Rhode Island and left areas as far south as Westerly and as far north as Cumberland coated in the white stuff.
