Joe Kruszewski ventured out for firewood.
“The snow was very light, easy to shovel that’s why a lot of trees didn’t come down and break,” Kruszewski said.
Crews kept the blacktop showing.
“They took good care of the roads and they did it regularly. ”
Rhonda Moore spent the afternoon digging out with her trusty companion.
“My daughter was out here with a ruler about three hours ago and it was at 16 inches,” Moore said.
