Mass. gov asks patience as crews clean up snow
BOSTON (AP) -- Gov. Deval Patrick is asking Massachusetts residents for patience as crews try to get the state cleaned up from a blizzard that dumped more than 2 feet of snow in some places.
He says there's a lot of snow to remove and it will take some time to do that. People in the western part of the state and Nantucket County can drive now and everyone else can get back on the roads at 4, though Patrick is asking them to stay home unless they need to be out.
He says the ban helped keep people safe on the roads.
He says the MBTA may start running some subways Sunday but the goal is to get public transit up and running for the Monday morning commute.
