PLYMOUTH (CBS) – A winter storm may be on the way, but you’d never know it if you were outside Friday.

“This is great!” said one woman of the weather while walking her dog on the Seawall in Marshfield. “My dog’s been swimming…I’ve been walking…it’s nice.”

At the Crosswinds Golf Club in Plymouth, they had nearly 80 golfers out on the course the day before the looming storm.

“The grass is brown, but at least it’s not covered in white,” said one golfer as he finsihed his round.
George Doody, the course starter, said this winter is a bonus. “We’ve been open more than in any winter since I’ve been here,” he said.

At the Plymouth DPW yard, they have a mountain of salt, ready to go. The forecast is for Plymouth salt trucks to be put to use Saturday.with as much as 6 inches of snow there.

And that won’t bother the guys at Morrison’s Power Equipment. They have a showroom full of snow blowers left over from a mild winter.

“December started out strong,” said Scott Morrison. “But then there were no storms, and our sales just died.”
