    Although most residents still haven’t dug themselves out of last night’s snow, Gloucester, Massachusetts is busy preparing for another major storm.

    The Gloucester Director of Public Works says right now workers are resting, but soon they will be ready for another round of snow. At the moment the drivers are resting so they can work hard through the second major winter storm to hit the area in just four days.

    One plow driver says a good way to stay safe is to avoid crowding the lanes on the road and avoid passing plows on the streets.

    “It’s not a good,” plow driver Stephen Page commented. “You have the snow on the other side and 30,000 pounds of steel right there. A car weighs 2,000 pounds.”

    Some residents are used to the snow. Gloucester local Candace Connelly has clearing her driveway down to a science and makes sure to get out her blower before the snow freezes.

    The North Shore could be one of the hardest hit areas of tomorrow’s storm. The region will likely experience incredibly strong winds and there is a possibility of flooding.
