(NECN: Brendan Monahan, Plymouth, Mass.) – Plymouth, Mass. was one of the towns down the east coast of New England that accumulated a lot of snow in the most recent winter blast.

Some businesses stayed open to help assist the people responsible for clearing the roads.

“We pretty much stay open during all storms, even state of emergency storms- just for that reason so we can sell to the plow guys and the electric companies will have their coffee. We pretty much stay open year round, unless we lose power and our backup generator doesn’t work,” said Tom Mann.

Many of the plows were focusing on salting and sanding, since the snowfall had completely halted by sunrise.
