After well over a foot of snow pummeled Stoneham in the first blizzard of the year, residents had to brush the dust off their shovels and snowblowers and get to work cleaning out their driveways on Monday.
After Mother Nature decided to unload more than a foot of snow on Stoneham during the first snowstorm of the season Sunday evening into Monday morning, residents were left with no other choice: It's time to break out the shovels and snowblowers and get digging.
