Snowed In Neighbors Lend Helping Hands
At a Southwick apartment complex, folks spent their Saturday morning digging out. Their cars were buried beneath mounds of snow taller than some adults. “I started shoveling about 5-5:30 this morning…still haven’t gotten anywhere,” said Todd Anderson.
Not even our news truck was immune to getting stuck. “I look out the window, and there’s the Channel 40, ABC News truck stuck, so I figured I’d bundle back up, see if I could help,” Anderson shared. The snow showed no mercy on blowers and plow trucks, breaking them down, which meant entire lots in the complex went untouched. Southwick got some of the most snow, over 2 feet of it. Neighbors are out trying to help each other dig out. “You wouldn’t be able to do it by yourself. If you’re elderly, the snow is heavy, it’s cold,” Crandall warned. “I love snow, I don’t mind the winter, and it’s the only way I get to meet my neighbors around here,” smiled. Geoff Lucas. “My father once told me help somebody if you can. So, we’ll help anybody we can, you know?” Anderson added.
Speaking of a helping hand, Mother Nature should be lending one next week to help melt the snow, since temperatures are expected to climb past 40 degrees.
