SHELBURNE, Mass. (WWLP) – Shelburne was among the Franklin County Communities hardest hit by Monday’s snow storm. Snowbanks are getting higher and shoveling takes longer. Mohawk Regional school district cancelled school Monday because of the storm. It was their 6th snow day this school year.
Mohawk Trail regional school district superintendent Michael Buoniconti told 22News how he decides what school days are de;ayed or cancelled due to weather conditions. “Basically I look at the worst conditions which are the secondary roads and the upper elevations, and those dictate my decision,” says Buoniconti.
Shelburne got the most amount of snowfall here in Western Massachusetts with 14 inches. And now that residents have to plow and shovel all of that snow away, most of them say they still don’t mind the weather.
“I feel bad for everybody else but I love it,” Shirley Scott told 22News. “I’m just very happy, and I’m retired. I live up on the hill in Buckland, and I can just look out at the snow and enjoy it. ”
Residents told 22News, although it can be difficult to drive around the snowbanks, they think the Department of Public Works did a decent job overall clearing the snow.
Brolin Winning of Shelburne told 22News, “It’s been good, they do a good job around here. You know, Route 2 is always pretty good, and we live right here on Main Street so they always do a good job”
“They really have done a good job cleaning up which is nice,” says Kim Guzewicz of Shelburne. “It is just one storm on top of another, where it is hard getting around but you just end up having to deal with it.”
Residents say they’re prepared for snow on Thursday’s and any other snowfall the rest of this winter. You can always track the weather in your area with our 22News Storm Team weather app WWLP WX, free at the app store.
