Some people in Franklin County ended up with close to a foot of snow before the transition to sleet Sunday morning.
The snow hung on the longest in Franklin County early Sunday morning where it finally started to switch to sleet at 6 a.m.
“It’s been rough. Roads are covered. Cars are covered. Came in here and had to track through the snow,” said Greenfield resident Michael Boyer. “I’m out here shoveling now. It’s been snow for the msot part, but now it’s starting to sleet as you can see.”
While for some clearing the snow was a hassle, others who plow and snow shovel to make an income rely on winter storms, which have been hard to come by lately.
“Very thankful for this snow storm. We haven’t had too much. Just a few saltings so far this winter,” said Greenfield plow truck driver, David Kalinowski. “Other than that, this is wonderful. A couple snow plowings out of this…”
About 8 to 12 inches of snow fell throughout Franklin County, but it was light and powdery.
With the bulk of the higher amounts of accumulating snow coming and ending early in the morning, it did give people the opportunity to clean up early before the wintry mix for the rest of the day.
And that’s what many people did before having breakfast at a diner in downtown Greenfield.
“It’s beautiful to look at, but not fun to work with,” said Boyer. “We’ll probably go back home. Finish cleaning off things and stay in and watch some football.”
Not a bad idea once the hard cleanup was done.
