CHICOPEE Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts really dodged the bulk of what this blizzard had to offer. On the brink of a blizzard, but in the end the bulk of the storm passed western Massachusetts by.
“Don’t need it and don’t want it,” seemed to be the consensus among most.
Sandy Bigelow said, “I’m thrilled, I teach school and we got to get those kids outside, and the snow is not my cup of tea.”
While western Mass did get a couple of inches it was hardly anything in comparison to other states on the east coast that were measuring the storm in feet.
Several states and Washington D.C. declared a state of emergency because of the snow storm, but western Massachusetts residents said they’re not all that worried about how much snow they end up with. They’re more worried about the big game on Sunday.
Al Gardner said, “Forget it! I want to see the football game in South Carolina and Denver.”
For those who have seen their fair share of New England winters, they felt lucky to have dodged such a large snow storm, but they also didn’t wish it on anyone.
David Griffith said, “I feel bad for them, but what are you going to do. We’ve had a pretty good winter so far.”
Governor Charlie Baker said he would lend a hand of assistance to states if need be in the aftermath, especially remembering the help that was lent to us in recent years.
Meanwhile skiers and those who enjoy the winter activities go on another day, looking for more snowflakes to play.
