While Bronx residents had to dig themselves out of a snowstorm Saturday, several Pelham Bay residents felt fortunate that the storm wasn't as severe as it was in areas north and east of the city. NY1's Erin Clarke filed the following report.

The city's most northern borough tended to get the most snow, but to folks in the Bronx, the overnight snowstorm was not as bad as it was elsewhere.

"This is relatively light," said one city resident. "Other places had much more worse storms."

"I'd say it's about an eight," said another city resident. "I've seen worse out here."

The snow stopped early, but walking and driving were a little difficult for a while.

It was nothing New Yorkers couldn't get through, though. They picked up shovels and switched on the snowblowers in Country Club to dig out the entire neighborhood.

"We always help one another," said one resident. "Not everybody has a snowblower. Mine, as you can see, my belt just broke, so my neighbor just came down and he's finishing up my sidewalk for me."

It will take a while to shovel the sidewalks and dig out their cars, but after all that work, there will be play for some.

"We're probably going to go sledding in Pelham Bay Park or do snowball fights with all our neighbors," said one resident.

That's the good part about snow on a Saturday. For most, it's a day off from work and school.
