    For most people, the issue isn’t the snow, but the bitter cold, which can be taxing on a person’s health.

    "Not bad- nice and light. Can't complain about this," McCarty said with a laugh when being asked about the difficulty of his morning. "It's pretty much what they were saying was going to happen. I'm glad it's as light and fluffy as it is."

    Travel was almost back to normal by noon on Wednesday, and Norwell police and fire said they have had quiet mornings.

    In addition, Norwell Town Administrator Jim Boudreau said that residents are used to this type of snowfall.
