Many went to sleep with a little wind, and woke up to a lot of snow, which wreaked havoc on the roads.
"It's dangerous. This morning it was. It was dangerous on that mountain. Looked like it was going to shut down, but I made it through it," says William Fowler, a Berryville resident.
While some had to leave for work, others worked from home with a shovel and plow.
"I usually go into work early anyway, so I did get to sleep in," says Mike Shake, a Berryville resident. "Knowing that it was going to snow all day I wanted to get out. They said heavy snow so I wanted to get out and make a first pass at it so it wouldn't be quite so hard at the end of the time."
Folks who talked to WHAG say they got up early to shovel snow out of their driveways and clear off their cars. They were quick to notice though that the blanket of snow was much heavier than they thought.
"It's a whole lot heavier than it was the last one. The last couple ones you could sweep with a broom. This here, its packing," says Fowler.
But for those who couldn't do the heavy lifting, neighbors were there to lend a hand. It's something Berryville residents love about their town.
"That's the really cool thing about snows like this. All the neighbors get together and help out. Sam across the street had a little tractor and he came through and snow-blowed all of the snow off the sidewalks," says Shake.
With schools and local government offices closed, some say there's no time for "cabin fever", they're ready to get out and enjoy it all.
"I'd rather have some deep snow than some little ice or rain or cold weather. So after a little while hopefully we'll be able to get out and play," says Shake.
"Whoever wants to make a snow man, they can make a big one... It will pack," says Fowler.
