(Amherst, MA)  —  Police are crediting rainy weather for a relatively quiet weekend at UMass Amherst.  Traditionally the last weekend in April is marked by huge parties.  This year there were only three arrests and only a handful of medical calls involving intoxicated people, according to “MassLive.”  First responders had prepared for the worst, after March’s Blarney Blowout where drunken partiers threw rocks and bottles at police in riot gear.
