Greenfield hit with at least 12 inches of snow

Franklin County

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Parts of Franklin County saw some of the largest amounts of snow so far, with a few towns getting more than a foot Sunday night.

For one 13-year Greenfield resident, snow clean-up isn’t too bad. He moved to Greenfield from El Salvador in 2000 and has loved the snow ever since.

Antonio Galendo told 22News, “We shovel it, we make it exercise, we get excited. “My first time I saw the snow I get excited because I used to see it only in TV and movies but not in reality. Now when I see in reality I love more I enjoy more.”

He added, “You’re not tired of it after 13 years?” “No, I’m not. No, I’m not I’m still so happy. You can see my car gets stuck but I still shovel it.”

Greenfield DPW has over 200 tons of salt that trucks will be distributed throughout the city during the entire storm. Parts of Franklin County saw more than a foot of snow on Monday, with more to come as the storm continues through Tuesday morning.

They’re forecasted to get anywhere from eight to 18 inches. But that doesn’t phase one 19 year greenfield resident.

“Oh, shoveling’s awesome welcome to New England,” said Andrea Hurd. “I lived in New England my whole life so snow is nothing new to me.”

But for her boyfriend from Lousianna, it’s 100 percent new to him. He only moved here last year.

Jeff Callaway of Greenfield said, “I’m not used to it at all. Um, yes I love it up here. I love it, I mean not necessarily this but I love the scenery it’s just a change.”

There is a parking ban in Greenfield until Tuesday morning at 7 a.m. prohibiting parking on both sides of residential streets.
