(WGHP) — Neighborhoods across the Piedmont Triad were filled with the sound of shovels scraping the ground on Monday.

Crews spent the day in Greensboro neighborhoods plowing and salting main and secondary roads, but several remained untouched into the evening.

Some people spent their holiday off clearing their driveways and preparing for the morning commute to work. 

“I’m out here trying to clear my sidewalk and my driveway, so I can get to work tomorrow. And just in case my kids have to go to school tomorrow, I don’t want them slipping and falling down the steps.” Lettie Clark said.

Others made the most of the slippery conditions. Many families spent the day sledding down hills, making snowballs and enjoying time together.

“I think it’s really good to be able to get out. Our power didn’t go out, so we can all be sure that we can just go back home and warm up and spend some time. Nowhere to go. Nowhere to be. Don’t have to worry about COVID or anything else that’s going on. Just some good ol’ fun with the family,” David Deweese said.

Because most people have the day off for the holiday, many say they’re saving the shoveling for another day.
