GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Pioneer Valley has seen its share of snow this winter, and it’s not over yet. 22News found out how some people are dealing with the frequent snow.
Franklin County has seen the bulk of the snowfall. That first storm in February gave the area at least 1 foot of snow. Then last week in Greenfield alone there was another 11 inches.
Despite the frequent business closings and permanent shovel in hand, some people are still managing to brace the weather with a humorous attitude.
One person told 22News, “It doesn’t bother me too much really. I’m looking forward to spring. I have a joke about all this snow. Do you know what the ground hog said a few weeks ago when he came out of his burrow…. he said when does the movie start.”
It does seem like we are in that Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day”, because of the almost weekly snow storms. It started snowing in Greenfield around 1 o’clock. It’s accumulated quickly and keeping the sidewalks and streets covered.
Many families are using the early closings of schools and businesses to go to the movies on Main Street.
