By Scott Malone MARSHFIELD, Mass. (Reuters) – Ocean Street in the waterfront Massachusetts town of Marshfield was littered with lobster traps, downed wires and chunks of houses on Wednesday, after a massive blizzard hammered New England. Notably absent was much of the 2 feet (30 cm) of snow that blanketed much of the Boston area, since for much of the storm, Ocean Street was under water because of flooding from a breached sea wall. “This area sees flooding regularly, but we haven’t seen damage like this since the blizzard of ’78,” town planner Greg Guimond said as he surveyed the wreckage. Schools remained closed in Boston and most of its suburbs for a second straight day but life was otherwise returning to normal with the city’s transit system and airport resuming service and a travel ban lifted.
