More people on foot than in cars as snow hit Greenfield

Franklin County

You probably saw a bit of a sleet and snow mix if you were driving up to Franklin County Tuesday afternoon, but the snow certainly got heavier closer to 6:00 p.m. along with a couple of inches.

Greenfield could get as much as four to eight inches of snow by the time the storm is over.

There were quite a few plows out in Franklin County, but it was hard to keep up as it started snowing harder around 5:00 and 6:00 p.m.

There weren’t too many cars on the road Tuesday night, but quite a few people were making their way through downtown Greenfield on foot, some of them not wanting to risk driving in this weather.

Scout Cuomo of Greenfield told 22News, “I quit driving around eleven and just tucked it in and got ready by salting my driveway. I never even went out in this, because I didn’t think my car could handle it. But it’s slippery when I’m walking on it.”

“There are places where I have to walk in the road and just be careful, because a lot of these sidewalks are too tough,” said Katherine Williams of Greenfield.

A lot of people 22News spoke with said they were picking up a few things downtown before the snow really started falling, and then they planned to stay inside until the end of the storm.
