Deerfield, N.Y. - As people all over Central New York continue to dig out from this January snowstorm that dumped up to 20 inches in some areas, those that we talked to on Sunday in Deerfield didn't mind the labor intensive work it too much.
Walker Rd. resident Steve Russo who was covered in snow while snow blowing his driveway with his son on Sunday says he was amazed at the lack of snow we've had up until this storm, "We all got lax because we said maybe it’s gonna be an easy winter, but I kind of figured we were going to get it."
Mark Rende, who has a plow on his pickup truck, was out since 2:00 a.m. plowing, but he wasn't getting paid. He says he just has about 20 family members and friends driveways that he helps people out with.
Rende says it's been a relatively easy winter for his personal plow service thus far, "It’s been pretty easy, so we’re paying for it."
Rende's shoveling service also came in handy as he helped some neighbors who tried to drive out of their driveways before he came to plow but then got stuck. He also has some advice for those that are complaining about the storm, "We're in Central New York, it’s what we do, it’s what we deal with, we live here, if you don’t like it, move."
