Troy, Bradford County-- A late April storm delivered a taste of winter to portions of our region.
Parts of western Bradford and eastern Tioga County each saw several inches of snow overnight.
It's an unusual-- but not unheard of-- sight for late April. In fact, Bradford county natives are used to dealing with snow late in the season.
But this far into spring?
Courtney Rockwell, of West Burlington, said, "I think it is ridiculous that we went from like 80 degrees a week ago-- to snow and a potential blizzard!"
Matt Thompson, of Troy, added, "I think it's too late in the year for it. It's alright, I can deal with it. But it should be warm now."
Pump and Pantry employee Roger Riddle spends plenty of time cleaning windows for his customers-- but he's not accustomed to clearing away snow just a week before the start of May.
Riddle lamented, "No, this is kind of different weather, for sure. A lot of people were saying due to the nice weather that we had a few months ago, that we would be paying for it, something we'd probably have to deal with. And we're paying for it!"
Folks we ran into along Route 6 Monday morning were trying to take the wicked weather in stride.
Despite the accumulation of a few or more inches of snow, people we spoke with say they still have to get to work.
We found Courtney Rockwell headed even further north-- to Elmira, New York, for job training.
She noted, "Yeah, I'm leaving a little early. I was anticipating bad weather considering they canceled school today."
And for Matt Thompson, who's originally from Texas, a few inches of snow weren't going to delay his natural gas drilling work.
Thompson explained, "We still keep running, unless the gas company shuts us down, keep plugging away. I'm getting married next month, so I hope it's not like this on my wedding day!"
And while there is a chance for some more snow showers in the northern tier through Tuesday, we're hoping-- for Matt's sake-- that May will bring better wedding weather.
