LUDLOW, MA (WSHM) -
A weekend snow storm left Western Massachusetts residents digging out once again on Sunday.
“Tired of it. Enough,” Lynn Alves from Ludlow said. “I'm from New England but enough! I want to move south.”
Both private and municipal snow removal crews were out and about cleaning up the most recent storm that dumped nearly a half-foot of snow in some area towns.
CBS 3 Springfield crews were out along the Mass Pike on Sunday morning and witnessed multiple spin-outs.
With multiple storms the last few weeks, plow drivers have stayed busy.
“Some storms like this, they seem like they're never ending so you go anywhere between 16 and 24 hours,” Allan Clark from Belchertown who drives a private snow plow truck said.
Local hardware stores have been taking a hit as well.
“With the storms, we've been selling shovels, ice melt, everything like that,” Joao Bernardo from Rocky's Ace Hardware in Ludlow said. “We've actually been going pretty fast to get it back in, sell it, get it back in, that kind of thing.”
Most snowfall tapered off in Western Massachusetts in the early afternoon hours on Sunday.
The Massachusetts State Police restored operation to posted speed limits on the Mass Pike shortly before 2:30 p.m.
