People Clear Several Inches Of Snow In Northeast

People Clear Several Inches Of Snow In Northeast
ABERDEEN, SD -

With a lot of snow on the ground in the northeast by Tuesday morning, equipment cleared streets and sidewalks throughout the day.

The city of Aberdeen cleared emergency routes early in the morning, the downtown area at night and several residential neighborhoods in between. Before the plows came out, a lot of snow piled on roads.

"Got stuck as I turned onto the highway. It was a little interesting, you know, rocking the car back and forth," Nathan Fredrickson said.

And many others joined Fredrickson working to dig and sometimes spin out of the eight inches of fresh snow.

It took some work for NSU student Yvonne Freese to get her car out on the road Tuesday, and it didn't stay there for long.

"Well, I'm looking for my car. I went to class and an hour later it had been towed. So now I was told to walk around the streets to find my car," Freese said.

The city plowed throughout the day. Aberdeen's public works director calls the latest snowfall within the realm of normal. Every couple inches adds more expense to the effort but figures don't pass what the city plans to pay until snowfall amounts reach about a foot.

With a ticket on her towed car, the storm cost Freese $40 more than she planned.

"I was like, 'Oh, it'll be fine for an hour and I'll just go move it.’  But no; it's towed," Freese said.

After his one time getting stuck overnight, Fredrickson didn't have any more car troubles. Living on a snow emergency route, his street was clear by the time he left for work. All in all, he says he can't complain this time.

"Yeah, I think we can go ahead and do this once a year. We can keep it to once a year," Fredrickson said.

If his wish doesn't come true, the city should still be fine. Aberdeen budgets for five city-wide snow removal events and this is the first of 2013.
