NORWICH, Conn. (WTNH) -- The cities and towns in eastern Connecticut have been ready for the snow since Wednesday. It didn't come yesterday but it sure did today.
From the rural roads of Lebanon to the city streets of Norwich folks in eastern Connecticut seem to have the same reaction to today's snow.
"I had no idea it was going to be like this. I mean I thought we'd get a few inches but," said David Beebe, A-2-Z Landscaping.
Beebe isn't complaining. He's happy to have his crews busy at work clearing these restaurant parking lots.
"It's about fifteen pounds, it's not that heavy," said CJ Hallisui, A-2-Z Landscaping.
"Not that heavy," said News 8's Tina Detelj.
"No I'm used to it. Been doing it all winter," said Hallisui.
They're hard at work so the folks at Five Guys can be hard at work.
"We're open from eleven to ten today," said Matt Scheliarini, Five Guys.
It took Matt Scheliarini an hour to get to work today. The snow slowed him down but didn't stop him from firing up the Five Guys grill.
"Make sure the building's safe for business, everything's nice and clear for all the customers. Get some good burgers and fries. Come see us," Diane Gurling, Five Guys.
This could be the last snowfall for these guys. Professionally they'd like to make a little more money but personally they're fine with it.
Storms or no storms, Beebe says he's taking the sanders off his truck this weekend.
"I can't wait for spring. I'm really excited," said Beebe.
With temperatures heading into the fifties over the next few days it may seem like spring is just around the corner but don't forget this is New England and it has snowed in April.
