Frustration builds with frequent snow storms

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Another February day, another round of snow and people are tired of the continuous winter weather.

“I’m sick of it. I want spring to come. This is miserable depressing weather…Just being stuck in the house for so many days, wanting to get out and do stuff. It’s time for spring and warm weather,” said Angela Park from Springfield.

Snow started fairly light Saturday morning, not accumulating much at first, but certainly not helping the mood.

By late in the afternoon the snow was becoming much more of a nuisance in the ground and on the road.

Snow storms in the winter in New England are nothing unusual, but it’s the frequency of these storms, three storms in eleven days that makes this February particularly peculiar.

The back to back snow storms seem to frustrate even the heartiest of New Englanders.

“I hate it, I’m done. I’m so fed up with it I could cry right now…It’s been one right after another. We just had the big one on Thursday and now we’re getting more. You just get cleaned up after one and you get more so there’s no end,” said Susan Burgess from Westfield.

Still there’s snow lovers who don’t mind the winter white falling from the sky, they just don’t know what to do with it when so much accumulates.

“I am worried because those snow banks are kind of high, where the next storm is going to go-where the next snow is going to go? The banks are too high now,” said Fran Phelan from West Springfield.

Those high banks that line streets like giant walls, make driving these winter streets even more difficult.

“Driving around, the driving is pretty tough. I get anxiety when I drive so this weather, driving in it makes me even more anxiety,” said Jennifer Wainwright from Ludlow.

There are some signs that we’ll be able to melt some of this snow over the next couple weeks with our extended forecast pointing to much warmer than normal temperatures by the end of the coming week.
