Massachusetts' MetroWest Digging Out of Snowy Mess



    (Published Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015)

    The massive mountains of snow are making getting around difficult in New England.

    Intersections tough to navigate, some sidewalks still impassable and driveways are a snowy mess in Massachusetts' MetroWest.

    Marc Patterson is head chef at John Stone's Public House in Ashland, where customers have stayed away and deliveries have been delayed thanks to the crazy winter weather.

    "Definitely has an effect on us, the storm, as far as people trying to get out and about during the day," he said.

    MetroWest, like other parts of New England, is still digging out from the second major snow storm in less than a week. For many, just going outside is a chore.

    "We didn't even come out yesterday to shovel because the snow kept on coming and coming and coming. We tried to, but it was so windy. We just stayed in,"

    The snow is everywhere, making travel along a lot of the secondary roads difficult. They're narrow and not easy to navigate, something even children understand.

    "Our road was pretty bad. It wasn't plowed that much, it was pretty much like this," Matty Pearlman of Hopedale said.

    Allie Pearlman says it's a good thing she has missed school and has been playing in the snow in her time away.

    At Talvy Brothers Florists in Ashland, there are signs of spring, but the snow has not been good for business, which is somewhat concerning with Valentine's Day around the corner.

    "We're just hoping and praying for good weather," David Talvy said.
