Westfield, MA - For those of you that don't know, ABC 13 Meteorologist Lyndsay Tapases is from Massachusetts. Her family now has to dig out of the two to three feet of snow the blizzard brought Friday Night.
The snow began for them around 10 a.m. Friday and didn't stop for about 24 hours. They have a good two feet of snow on the ground.
Lyndsay's two sisters' cars in the driveway were also completely buried. Her father, Chris Tapases is thankful he had the help of a neighbor to help with the snow blowing.
Mr. Tapases measured about 25 inches of snow and estimates the drifts were even higher, between 30 and 35 inches, which has made digging out of it quite a challenge.
"The gusts were tremendous. Out there with the snow blower, the snow was just blowing right back at you, so you had to go over it multiple times. And I'm assuming that tomorrow I'm probably going to have to go back out again, just to clean up the drifts because it is still very windy," Mr. Tapases said.
Lyndsay's family were fortunate not to lose power after all of the wind and snow.
