WGBH: Charlie Baker Plays To The Crowd, Talks Snow, MBTA
As originally appearing in WGBH

By 

Gov. Charlie Baker diverted from his usual speech topics of energy, development and education Thursday to address what was obviously on the audience’s mind — the weather and the MBTA.

Baker, addressing the New England Council economic development association, even had a safety reminder.

“I’ve learned a lot about snow,” Baker told the crowd. “The fluffy stuff you have on your roof weighs about 7 pounds per cubic foot. After the rain this weekend, that snow is going to weigh about 21 pounds per cubic foot.”

Baker promises that he’s thinking about long-term improvements to the MBTA and believes the state will qualify for federal disaster assistance after the storms.
