AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – The icy conditions this morning were an inconvenience to many across Western Massachusetts as they tried to start their day.
With schools already closed for February vacation, the Wintry mix that Massachusetts woke up to Tuesday morning didn’t cause a problem for most local schools.
It was however a major inconvenience for many others who still had to make it to class or work.
“It doesn’t cancel anything but it’s just something extra that you have to do in the morning before you head out to your thing. Work is work,” said Victor Valentine of Springfield.
Businesses, community centers, and colleges across western Massachusetts ran on a delay Tuesday morning.
Students at colleges like Springfield Technical Community College and Holyoke Community College enjoyed a delay. But those missed classes, even though they’re paid for aren’t made up.
The Agawam Senior Center had to cancel their meals on wheels program that more than 100 people depend on because of the weather. This is something however that they planned ahead for.
“What we do in November is we pack shelf stable meals, we do about four of them and we deliver them before the storm starts. This way they have something on the shelf just in case they can’t get a home delivery, a hot meal delivered to them,” said Carol Bernazki of the Agawam Senior Center.
The Agawam Senior Center did stay open for any resident who was able to make it there for a hot meals.
