Life slowly returning to normal after snow storm

Many rushed out to the grocery stores in West Springfield

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Memorial Avenue in West Springfield is still covered by snow, but it has been plowed and the road is passable.

Even more good news, clean up crews worked through the night in West Side and got the Century Plaza parking lot plowed. You can see the pavement.

The Dollar Store and the Big Y were open Tuesday afternoon. 22News went in the Big Y and spoke with the store manager about what they have left after the big shopping rush before the storm.

Doug Zimmerman said, “Still have a few shovels left, windshield washer left. We try to stock up on the winter things, winter items before the storm, but this was a big storm.” Their milk and bread aisles are relatively well stocked.

Other major grocery stores are opening their doors Tuesday night as well; that includes the Stop & Shop in West Springfield.

Chekquita Barnes of Springfield is happy that her street got plowed early, allowing her family to head over to the grocery store to pick up some dinner items. She said, “It’s pretty good. They did a good job plowing the streets because they usually take a while before they get there, but they came early.”

Travel bans for our region has been lifted, but keep in mind, the ban on the Mass Pike across the whole state remains in effect.
