Valentine’s Day snow presents a challenge for local florists – Boston 25 News


QUINCY, Mass. — Sending the Valentine’s Day by courier was a little more difficult due to the snow this weekend.

In Tony Tangney’s line of work, presentation is everything. Delivery driver Fabiano Florist puts smiles on people’s faces for Valentine’s Day. “It’s my 11th year. I like making people happy, it helps me,” Tangney said.

The weekend snow made his job a little trickier. “A dozen roses and it’s all shoveled out so I don’t have to worry about slipping and falling,” Tangney said.

At Almquist Flowerland in Quincy, they work in a lower work area putting together arrangements to make all the magic happen. Owner Bob Almquist says the Monday holiday turned Valentine’s Day into even more work. “We strayed a lot that Saturday. It was 60 degrees, it was nice and nice and here we are, it’s 25 degrees and it’s snowing,” Almquist said. He said the snow didn’t help. “Sometimes it’s hard to get off the road when you’re trying to deliver to people’s homes,” Almquist said.

Max Dorman was at Almquist feeling the pressure after his new girlfriend beat him to the fist. “She came in and had two dozen roses,” Dorman said. We joked with him that his flower selection was the perfect gift. “Thank you very much,” laughed Dorman.

As Tony Tangney will tell you, it’s always the thought that counts. “Happy Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget the people you love,” Tangney said.
