BLANDFORD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

While some communities were pelted with driving rain, others got snow.

Anyone driving to the west of north saw a mixed bag of weather.

Friday's nor'easter brought a wet, heavy snow in Blandford, which was tough to move and even tougher to drive in.

"It’s completely different. It’s like a slushy snow up at my house, compared to down here where it’s just rain," said Middlefield resident Olivia Killela. 

The lower Pioneer Valley got pummeled with driving rains and powerful winds. 

"I’ve been wishing for a little more all winter. I wish the weather would straighten out, it has been ten years of abnormal winters," said Foster Webster. 

While some were thinking spring, some folks didn’t mind seeing snow in the forecast.
    
For those like Mr. Webster, who is a plow truck driver, wouldn’t mind if spring took its time to come back around. 

"It’s tough to run a business when you have to rely on the weather," said Webster. 

The roads are still slick, and drivers are reminded to take their time if you have to head out on the roads.
