KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Friday snow in the metro is impacting restaurants in the downtown area.

"I’ve been tired, I was tired before Christmas came,” said Valerie Soil.

It is safe to say, some are starting to get winter fatigue this season.

"Its a wet mess, a wet mess,” said Soil.

Soil is a delivery driver. For what seems like the 100th time, Friday we saw the parade of snow plows.

"Man I will tell you, the snow definitely slows business down down here,” said Anthony Silano with Anton’s.

Snow plows Anthony Silano hopes will make a clear path for dinner Friday and Saturday night.

"We had 120 [reservations] when the day started, we are down to about 80 now,” said Silano around lunchtime.

From the moment Anton’s opened Friday, people canceled their evening plans because of the road conditions.

"Comes with the territory when the snow comes down, people stay home.”

The concert at Sprint Center Friday night is still planned to happen.
