The town of Sharon took a beating from the Blizzard of 2013 over the weekend, but officials in town said most of the reports they received were of routine nature. 

Sharon Patch spoke with Sharon Dep. Fire Chief Richard G. Murphy and Dep. Police Chief J.McGrath on how they weathered the storm.

"We had six extra fire fighters on hand to answer the fairly routine calls," Murphy said. "A stokes basket was used to transport a person from their home to the hospital. We did have isolated power outages and were ready with generators and a shelter."

McGrath added, "We also had additional police officers on hand. Our calls were mostly from people who were stuck in the snow."
