The flakes are flying in Bridgewater, one of the communities that is bracing for a winter wallop as a quick-hitting nor’easter blows through Massachusetts on Tuesday.

Bridgewater residents were out getting last-minute items Monday night with just hours to go before a major snowstorm is expected to dump snow on parts of southeastern Massachusetts.

Shoppers who spoke with 7NEWS said they’re getting items they’ll need and excited to have a day off from work and school due to the treacherous driving conditions the storm is expected to create.

“I’m working remotely, they closed my building. So I’m just checking in and enjoying a snow day,” one person said.

At a nearby Home Depot, other people were getting some final items for snow removal and ice melting.

“I have two boys at home, so they need to shovel a little bit I think,” one shopper said.
