PITTSFIELD, Mass. - A snow emergency is now in effect for the city of Pittsfield. There will be no parking on city streets until 7 a.m. Friday to allow the plow drivers to do their work.

As the snow fell steadily in Pittsfield and built up on the roads, some people went about their business as usual.

"I was born and raised here. This is normal for the Berkshires," pointed out Diane Williams of Pittsfield.

The owner of Peter's Cut Above on North Street, Peter Magnano, said while he closed up early, it was still a busy day.

"My regulars wanted their haircut still and they came," explained Magnano. "Now, the snow's picking up, so I'm getting the heck out of dodge."

The senior center welcomed clients.

"We're open. People just wanted to come out of the cold. We have availability of some food for them. The congregant meal site was on today for elder services – so they were serving meals. We're just there. We're there in case people want to get warm or just have some socialization," noted Vin Marinaro with the senior center.
