Massachusetts residents are all too familiar with big snowstorms, frigid temperatures, and power outages. As a matter of fact, Massachusetts residents can expect to freeze their buns off this winter and you can get more details by going here.

Big Snowstorms Come with the Territory of Being a Massachusetts Resident

New Englanders have had their share of big snowstorms over the years. One storm that comes to my mind was the one that happened right around Halloween in 2011. We were slammed with snow over a period of a couple of days (right around 32 inches in some areas of the Bay State) with the storm forming on Oct. 29 Then, at least in the Berkshires, we didn't receive a whole lot of snow that particular winter but we have definitely made up for it in other years. It's no surprise that visitors come to Massachusetts and the Berkshires to partake in snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, and more outdoor winter activities.
