PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The City of Pittsfield is following suit with most of the state in declaring a snow emergency.
Cars will not be allowed to park in any street that needs to be plowed until 7 a.m. on Sunday. Vehicles that violate this order may be towed.
Despite many residents hitting gas stations and grocery stores to stock up on food and water, they still say this storm isn't anything new, especially in Berkshire County.
Pittsfield Mayor Dan Bianchi said, "Stay off the streets. Please use our facilities around town to park their cars so we can clean the streets in a safe manner and we'll get through this. And to the extent that people can do it, I hope that we'll enjoy Mother Nature’s gift to us.”
On resident said, "We live in the Berkshires, everybody complains about it and cries when we get snow. Gottta make the best of it and have fun. Been here my whole life and it happens every year. Might as well have fun with it."
There are some exceptions to the travel ban, those include emergency and media vehicles.
