Many Midstaters didn't let the snow wipe out their plans

Posted: Updated:

The weather was wintry Saturday and the driving was a bit on the tricky side. But lots of Midstaters still went about their business for much of the day.

ABC27's Al Gnoza talked with several folks who were shopping late in the afternoon at the Shoppes at the Susquehanna Marketplace.

"I'm actually on my way to work," said Jill Steffen of Halifax. "I work part-time in retail, so I am going to enjoy the snow and head over to the other side of the river."

Jami Lupino and her daughter Sophia were also just starting out.

"We're going to go home and sled right now and we're out shopping this morning," she said.

Nikki Rhoades of the Justice store was not surprised at all that shoppers were not letting the weather keep them inside.

"Even though this is my first Christmas at Shoppes, I have worked at Colonial Park Mall for a few years and usually snow days are busy," she said.

A few hours later on the West Shore, the snow was inching higher at the Camp Hill Mall. Driving in the snow was no problem for Carol Hill of Mechanicsburg.

"I just stay six car lengths away from the car in front of me and I drive slow in the snow," she said.

Meanwhile over in Harrisburg on Second Street abc27 met several people who were participating in the ugly sweater bar crawl -- crawling yes, driving - no way.

"I live in town and she actually is welcome to stay," said Cynthia Vonschlichten, who was walking with her friend Amanda Kime of Lower Allen Township.

"I live on the West Shore but I'm planning on staying overnight," Kime said.
