Mitchell didn't get as much snow as some of the cities in the northeast, but it did get nearly ten inches. It’s the most many residents have seen in a few years and was enough to keep clean-up crews and homeowners busy all day.
"Five to six guys just to clean up all day to make it accessible to work," Puetz Corporation Superintendent Neil Weber said.
Whether it was with a loader or a snowblower, the Puetz Corporation construction crew planned to spend all day Monday pushing aside the snow that slowed their progress on the job site.
"With the interstates being closed, it's been tough to get guys to come in, so thankful for the few guys we've got here who came in so we can actually get some progress when we get going tomorrow," Weber said.
After digging out his driveway Dave Kasten decided to take his tractor to go clear out his church.
"It works real well. It's all restored and it's about the only use it gets," Kasten said.
Some businesses in Mitchell were closed because of the winter blast. Schools also cancelled classes in Mitchell.
But whether it was playing in it or clearing a path through it, residents say this is one of the biggest snowstorms Mitchell has seen in awhile.
"It's been a few years. A few years ago we had an awful lot. This is the most I've seen in a long time," Kasten said.
