Norwood Residents Mostly Pleased With How Town Responded to Blizzard

Readers responded on Facebook with their assessment of how officials in Norwood responded to the storm.

It's been a few days since the Blizzard of 2013 wound down, but we wanted to get an idea from the view of residents in Norwood how the town responded to the storm. 

On the Norwood Patch Facebook Page, we asked, for input as to how Norwood responded to the storm and for readers to grade the town's efforts on cleanup. Here's how some of the nearly 40 readers who responded weighed in:

  • Tina Montesano: A+! Our DPW always does an amazing job!
  • Allison Carrie Webster: I was amazed by how clear the roads were when I drove home after working 16 + hours at a hospital. Excellent job by the DPW
  • Jessica Audi Jabour: I drove to Dedham today for work it was so bad in Dedham and I said to myself THANK GOD I LIVE IN NORWOOD!! It was really good in Nowood A+
  • Stephen Houston: Good job under the circumstances! Thank god we have Norwood electic company!, they do AWESOME keeping us with power!! There are some power outage Horror stories out there but not in Norwood!! Thank you!!
  • Lisa Koplowitz: Great job during the storm but never saw a plow again and our street is still covered with snow.

What do you think? How did Norwood respond to the storm? Was your road plowed to your liking?

Thanks and kudos to the UTILITIES folks....We are fortunate to live in Norwood because almost 100% of the time, during bad weather, the lights are ON in Norwood. I have a family member that requires power 100%, 24/7 and the Fire Department knows that if the lights go out, they are right there. Good people and Good town.

all true, but why did the sidewalk plows work Friday night and never to be seen again? There was no school on Friday and the kids don't go to school on Saturday or Sunday? It seems these sidewalk plowers are left to their own demise and overtime rules.

I agree the plow drivers DPW and the contractors did a good job considering the amount of snow. They also had plenty of time to be prepared and there was a driving ban. People need to slow down and be patient instead of driving like lunatics. My biggest concern is the sidewalks or lack of that kids have to wait at for their bus. Do home owners have any legal responsibility to do them what is the bylaw? If the sidewalk tractors know the bus stops can they do those areas ??

I thought the Norwood DPW did a real good job...The Light dept kept the lights on as well. As for bus stops I am sure kids can wait on the sidewalk in a driveway for now. Sure the home owner will not mind

I am sure the home owners dont mind the kids waiting in the driveways either. But some kids have to walk down a main drag to get to their stop. That is dangerous.

Don't know what to say - I walked to school for 12 years...just hoping drivers are paying attention as well as the kids
