GREENFIELD — Shane Bundy makes quick work of filling up customers’ gas tanks at Swifty in Greenfield.

He dashes to and from the service station hub in the 1300 block of North State Street, taking orders and making change. The work is fast-paced, and on most days, the hours fly by.

Tuesday was not most days.

As Bundy ran from the hub to greet a customer Tuesday afternoon, the thermostat was hovering just above zero. He shoved his hands in his pockets after the transaction, which he had just completed without gloves.

“I can’t handle the money with gloves on,” he said. “The wind just wants to take it away.”

Instead, Bundy stuffs his pockets with hand-warming packets to fight off the cold.

“They help out a lot,” he said, hands jammed tightly inside.

While many county residents stayed in early this week, waiting out the worst of the winter storm, others braved the bitter chill to perform jobs that make life easier for the rest of us.
