Cold Meets People Cleaning Up In Northeast

January 27, 2014, 5:09 PM by Erich Schaffhauser

Cold Meets People Cleaning Up In Northeast

The blizzard had passed but there was still a no-travel advisory in a small part of the northeast Monday morning.

But supervisors and plow operators said clean up went better than expected. Still, they and everyone else outside Monday faced the bitter cold.

Drifts built up by the wind had snow blowers running, whether the temperatures seemed to invite people outdoors or not.

Erich Schaffhauser: How are you keeping warm?
Louie Bjerke: More or less with several layers of clothes, quite a few in fact.

Bjerke was one person in Webster braving the cold to clear the snow. Day County was one of many places you could find road crews out doing the same.

Plow operators with the South Dakota Department of Transportation were out on Interstate 29 in Roberts County around 4 a.m. A supervisor in that area said clean up went better than expected. The interstate opened a few hours later.

Plow operators working for Grant County agreed. They cleared some hard drifts on county roads, but conditions were better than expected considering the blizzard that covered the northeast Sunday.

Back in Webster, Bjerke says the chore of cleaning wasn't too hard for him either.

"It's not all that bad on a count that the wind is light," Bjerke said. "But it's cold."
