A customer leaves Taft Power Equipment in Holyoke, Mass. as new snow blowers line the entrance on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick declared a state of emergency Friday and banned travel on roads as of 4 p.m. as a blizzard that could bring nearly 3 feet of snow to the region began to intensify.
