How is the Blizzard Treating You? [Video]

The Blizzard of '13 is just picking up. How are you riding out the storm?

Across Plymouth there's barely a loaf of bread or bottle of milk on a grocery shelf. Other people have hit the package stores.

Up until 4 p.m. people piled into cars to see what's happening on the Waterfront, or at Bert's Landing, or at the Lobster Pound.

The answer, not much...yet.

The storm, dubbed "Nemo" by the Weather Channel, is just starting to pick up. The plows are out, the emergency shelter is open, and people are heading home early from work, seeing as Gov. Patrick has issued a ban on vehicle traffic at 4 p.m.

Compared to the other February blizzard (that would be '78 for those of us who weren't around), this storm is a ghost of a storm.

A downtown resident named Pete was sitting in his truck in the lot by the Plymouth Harbor breakwater watching the snow and the few boats remaining in the harbor.

Pete said the storm hasn't lived up to the hype, and doesn't think it will, however, he added, "I'd rather be safe than sorry."

"I came down because my friend's boat is in the harbor," he said as the wind whipped icy snow at his face.

Recalling the Blizzard of '78, Pete said this storm could be a lot worse.
