WMass is dealing with relentless winter weather

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP)- Repeat snow storms and  low temperatures are becoming a little too familiar this winter.  We’ve had two major snow storms in just one month. But all that shoveling and frequent closings of offices and schools doesn’t have too many people under the weather.

In just two weeks Franklin County has received more than 3 feet of snow. Many businesses and offices closed because of the heavy snowfall. But some stores stayed open despite the weather.

Owner of The Clay Oven, Madan Rathore, told 22News why he didn’t close because of the storms. “Being a business owner, I kept our door open so that people know that we’re open and that they can come and eat. So that worked very good for us.”

Only half the businesses in downtown greenfield stayed open during last week’s snow storm. Some people actually enjoy the weather and have taken advantage of the snow. Some people like Lauren Layton told 22news they’re ready for the winter to end because they’re tired of the snow keeping them indoors. Layton said, “It’s a little intimidating. having a little cabin fever a little bit. But you know just stay warm and cozy with a wood stove and some books and I’ll be alright.

Franklin County is expecting more snow Tuesday as another winter storm hits western Massachusetts.
