GREENFIELD — One would think Wednesday’s blizzard would have put a damper on the spirits of Greenfield Street Department employees. After all, snow blew across city streets just as quickly as plows could clear them, erasing any sign of the work that was just done.
Moreover, blizzard conditions here Wednesday forced 12-hour shifts and hazardous conditions many of them hadn’t seen in years.
It didn’t matter to them a bit.
