The day after: Snowstorm cleanup

East Longmeadow received 19 inches

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – East Longmeadow was the “jackpot spot” for snow Thursday after 19 inches piled up there.

“I thought we were going to skate right through the winter and then this came on us, sop far we’ve been lucky, but we’re making up for it now,” said Frank Cavanaugh of East Longmeadow.

Other areas of western Massachusetts also received more than a foot of snow as well, and although crews have worked to clear the roads, there are still concerns for Friday.

“Luckily its a soft fluffy snow so it was easy to lift, if it was wet i’d still be over there,” said Frank Commisso of East Longmeadow.

Drivers should give themselves extra time to get to work and school Friday morning. Side roads are still snow covered and snow banks could affect driver’s ability to see other cars when pulling out of driveways, streets and parking lots.

“I came out at the end once it stopped, because coming out in the middle didn’t make any sense to me,” Jeorge Rodriguez of East Longmeadow.

Even those who were proactive with their cleanup found themselves digging out the end of the driveways Friday morning after the plows blocked them back in.

The snow banks could grow even larger this weekend. The 22News Storm Team has more snow in the forecast for Friday night.
