BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Despite the elements, some New England residents took the storm in full stride.
WBZ's Matt Shearer spoke to some individuals wearing (or lacking) their warm clothes in the storm.
Jamie from Framingham wore a t-shirt and held an ice coffee in his hand, and when asked if he was cold, Jamie said,
"Nope, it's warm out what do you mean? Most people should wear snow pants, jackets and what-not but if you're a true New Englander- it don't matter."
Lou from Sudbury said he wanted to represent the Boston Bruins and New England Patriots, even if it meant not wearing a jacket.
The National Weather Service said that reports of 12 inches of snow were coming in Saturday afternoon.
"Please do not travel if you do not need to," the NWS said in a statement.
Boston Mayor Michelle Wu also recommended that residents stay inside and avoid traveling if at all possible.
Snowplow driver Mark from Ashland said there was plenty to do on Saturday.
"It's wonderful today- it's just another day at the beach in New England, we love this stuff," Mark said.
