CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Snowfall amounts vary across the region Friday night.

Our 22News crew was at the Blandford rest area Friday morning where roughly half a foot of snow was on the ground by 10a.m. But just miles down the road at the Lee rest area it was still raining at that same time.

22News spoke with someone passing through Lee from South Egremont who says they prefer the snow.

“It’s changing to snow now but I thought we were going to get some last night. but in Egremont we still have nothing but rain. I’d rather just have cold and snow than rain and ice,” Frank Stevens from South Egremont told 22News.

On I-90 between New York and Mile Marker 32 in Russell speed was reduced to 40mph.
