Residents dig out after first snow

Posted: Updated:
GLOCESTER, R.I. -

A noisy Sunday morning to say the least; this was the type of storm where mere shoveling wouldn't do and scraping was part of the task at hand.

NBC 10 talked to John Collette, of Glocester, "it was slow and steady, it wasn't like you could push it far, scoop throw, scoop throw, good for the back ha ha."

It was back breaking work to say the least.

Some say it would have almost been better to have all snow and more of it, than the mix with sleet and freezing rain that has made this white stuff so heavy.

More snow is predicted for Tuesday, and residents are hoping that this bout will be fluffy and light. Jonathan Collette told NBC 10 "it's definitely a lot worse; a lot heavier with the mix in there everything else, hopefully the next bout is the lighter stuff."

As for driving around, one of the big concerns is that with slushy stuff like this, anything that's not cleared away when the temperatures drop, will freeze.

But the aftermath of the storm wasn't all work, and some like found plenty of time to play.

Neighbors Brianna Parenteau and Brendan Falls didn't need white fluffy snow to have a good time sledding, the icy mix served them just fine, telling NBC 10 "it's good, the ice helps going down."

Ice may have helped their sledding, but it's not good for much else, so hopefully you cleared away as much as you could.
