Old Man Winter left his mark on Southeastern Ohio early Tuesday morning…

The winter season officially begins next week, but the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Muskingum County garage reports that our area saw two inches of snowfall on Tuesday morning. Dozens of schools in the area were closed, and multiple counties were placed under snow emergencies… But some residents said the snowfall did not put a damper on their plans.

"Well I don’t mind this so much because it’s dry, but the wet stuff is what… And the ice… You know… I don’t mind a little bit of snow, but when the ice and stuff comes it makes it difficult," said Zanesville resident Pat Gay.

"Well, this isn’t bad. Compared to what they get at Lake Erie, and snow effect snows where they get a foot, 14 inches, that’s crazy. A couple inches, that’s nice… We can deal with that. It’s a little early this year, but like I say, for the kids, Christmas… white
Christmas… It’s a beautiful thing," said Zanesville resident Andy Trout.

The snowfall may have moved out of our area, but residents are now bracing for an artic blast headed our way, with temperatures expected to plunge into the teens as we head toward the end of the week.
