    23 inches of snowfall in Holden, Mass.

    Workers have had more difficulty with storm than recent blizzard (Published Friday, Jan. 17, 2014)

    (NECN: Mike Cronin, Holden, Mass.) - The snow has stopped, but not before it dumped about two feet in Holden, Mass. Friday. 

    The town Department of Public Works said the storm was more difficult to deal with than February's blizzard because of the number of drivers on the roads and the weight of the snow. 

    Whiteout conditions had many residents and workers fed up with the snow. 25 trucks have been out in Holden since 7 p.m. Thursday. Unlike during the blizzard, there was no travel ban. 

    The main roads are relatively clear, but a lot of side roads still need to be treated. 

    The Director of Public Works urges people to give plow drivers plenty of room on the roads.
