NORTH ADAMS, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Residents in Northern Berkshire County took the brunt of this storm, some spending all morning digging themselves out.

6 a.m. on Thursday morning, Mary Bryant and her husband, Jeff, awoke to a measured three feet of snow outside their front door.

According to snow totals collected, Clarksburg had the highest total in the state with 32 inches.

North Adams is just south of that, where, because of snow drift, some people are measuring a full their feet of snow in their driveways.

The North Adams couple kept a close eye on the forecast but could tell this storm’s snow totals would be hard to predict.

Western Mass News spoke with the Bryant’s around noon on Thursday – Six and a half hours into their snow clean-up.

“I have to actually shovel off the top 2 to 3 inches of snow so that he could then get the snow blower through and then once he got a path through, I would go like this and bring it down into the pathway we just made.”

A bit of urgency is added to all of this shoveling and snow blowing -- Bryant has dialysis on Friday.

“I probably shouldn’t even be doing this but you have to do what you have to do to survive in New England. Maybe it’s time to go south.”

However, the couple is sticking around for the medicine in Massachusetts and maybe for the snowy workouts.

“You know, it’s cardio,” Bryant said. “I’m on a transplant list and I want to make sure that I’m in good health by the time I do get my kidney. Type O by the way if anybody’s got one!”
