Residents React to Winter Weather Hitting Four-State Region

Much of the east coast saw a welcoming of winter weather early Sunday morning, with much of the four-state region seeing periods of snow, sleet and ice.
HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Much of the East Coast saw a welcoming of winter weather early Sunday morning, with much of the four-state region seeing periods of snow, sleet and ice.

This caused chaos for drivers trying to reach their destination safely.

But this wintry weather is getting some local residents really excited for the season.

"It reminds me of home, in Montana. I love the snow," said William Kaschak of Hagerstown.

And one little girl couldn't wait to go make a snowman out of the fluffy stuff that fell Sunday morning.

"It's fun!" she said.

But some people aren't as happy to get a visit from "old man winter."

"It's been snowing for, three, four hours now. There's no salt on the road, the roads have not been plowed. We had a large fire truck try to come up the road to respond to an emergency, and if we hadn't been out there directing traffic, he would've gotten blindsided by three or four trucks, not being able to stop down the road," said Tyler Sirbaugh of Hagerstown.

And the roads were a big problem for some residents because of the storm.

"If it continues snowing, it'll be okay, but if becomes icy roads, that could be dangerous," said William Kaschak.

This winter storm is something that will continue into Monday, and we’re advising people to stay off of the roads if at all possible because they're pretty traitorous conditions. Officials say they're just going to get worse because of all the freezing rain and sleet that's coming our direction.
