Shrewsbury is far from EMC... Its always better to find a home near the office itself... Milford is the best... Thts closest to Hopkinton... There are good apartments in Marlborough too... U have Heights at Marlboro, then Royal Crest(not sure if the apts name is right)... Its gonna be three years since m in Shrewsbury... EMC office was in Westboro n Southboro earlier, n it is very close to Shrewsbury.. My husband is here in this place since 6 years... So we decided to continue staying here itself.. It was only in 2010 August tht they shifted to Hopkinton... Since we got adjusted to this place, we just dont wanna leave... Ur husband works for EMC in Banglore??? Yes during winter its very difficult to drive to office as its quite far... I too came to the US for the first time in winter only... In January... I had already bought winter jacket, gloves n all from India... So I managed to reach here.. N then after cmong here, in a week my husband took me out n bought me all the accessories for the winter... Jackets, leather gloves, boots etc etc... Yes, winter is terrible here but I think u will get adjusted to it once ur here..
