GREENFIELD — Good news, sledders: the first significant snowfall of the season is sticking around.

The winter wonderland brought on by Friday’s 3- to 5-inch dumping of snow across Hancock County is expected to last through the better part of next week, as temperatures likely won’t rise above freezing before Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

As usual, the first snowfall caught some motorists off guard.

Drivers had some difficulty navigating slippery roads over the course of the day, officials said. Dispatchers at the Hancock County Emergency Operations Center had recorded 20 slide-offs all around the county since 9 a.m. on Friday related to the condition of the roads, but there were no serious accidents or injuries reported as of press time Friday.
