MONSON, Mass. (WWLP) - For some parts of western Massachusetts, this latest storm came less than two weeks after being hit hard from the last storm.
After a quiet start to winter, it's been a very busy end.
Snow blowers were busy blowing and plows were busy plowing on the last morning of winter.
"It's getting up early, it's a little more aggravation kind of because you've got to get up a half hour early to clean off the cars and clean the driveway," said Bernard Schetzel of Monson.
As temperatures have slowly been warming over the past several weeks, elevation has become even more of a factor in snowfall amount. The higher you are, usually the more snow you've seen.
As is typically the case with a winter storm, the hills get more snow. Generally, in the hills it's colder which helps with accumulation. Not only that, but as snow showers move over the hills, an affect called "upsloping" tends to squeeze out more snow with less falling in the valley.
This winter feels even snowier, since it followed such a dry winter last year.
"We had a big drought last summer with the heat and everything and I just think mother nature's just kind of balancing things out a little bit and going to give us a little bit of extra snow here to bring up the water table," said Bill Swift from Monson.
Before this storm we were already two inches above normal for snow this winter, Tuesday's storm will only add to this surplus.
