BOSTON (CBS) – Some people on Tuesday night were hoping to see the first blooms of the season, while others were not.
“It feels like snow, you know when it smells and there’s moisture in the air,” said Lisa Krakoff, resident of Beacon Hill.
“If it’s just a layer of dust and added to the spirit, I’m in a good mood. However, if I’m stuck on Mass Pike for three hours, I’m not fine,” said Donna Buendo.
“I love snow. I have a tradition that whenever it snows overnight, I open the curtains to see as soon as I wake up,” says Janine Jay.
But there are businesses that are really hoping for some real snowfall, such as hardware stores looking to get winter goods off the shelves.
Jack Gurnon has owned Charles Street Supply for more than two decades and says sleds, ice melt and other winter gear have been untouched this season.
“We’ve got shovels and thawed ice and windshield scrapers and all that stuff is still here, we’re getting ready but we just need the snow,” Gurnon said.
The owner of 365 Landscaping in Needham tells us they’ve been relying on planting work lately, waiting for that first heavy fall to get the plow trucks out.
“We have several merchant accounts that pay monthly to help us and you know if we don’t get enough snow we’re going to hurt a little bit, but we just prepare for winter and hope. the best,” said Sam Nickles.
Meanwhile, both business owners and residents will have to fold their arms next time.

“It’s been part of the landscape over the last couple of years, it hasn’t impacted our business but clearly hasn’t helped our business,” Gurnon said.
