Snow, Cold And Wind Combine In Aberdeen

Snow, Cold And Wind Combine In Aberdeen

Aberdeen didn't receive as much snow as some places but conditions were bad enough to cancel schools and send out plows.

Crews will clear snow city-wide in Aberdeen Wednesday night and Thursday. They cleared snow emergency routes before that.

People throughout the city cleared sidewalks and driveways.

"We had a month to get ready, but no I don't think we're ever ready," Daniel Brown said.

Brown watched as wind blew snow back onto his sidewalk after shoveling. That's something city leaders will eye as well.

After clearing the downtown area overnight, crews will remove snow from most residential streets and avenues Thursday.

"The winds will be interesting because it's going to continue to blow tomorrow. But we can't wait an extra day just for the winds to subside, so we may have to go back and do some extra clean-up afterwards," Aberdeen Public Works Director Robin Bobzien, said.

The city is prepared to deal with that if needed.

Out in the country, county and state plows were out Wednesday. They couldn't treat roads because of the wind but cleared snow along routes. With empty ditches early in the season, officials say they aren't running into much drifting. Still, they are monitoring a few problem spots.

They'll be out early Thursday if needed. As Brown watches wind carry snow back to spaces he's shoveled, he figures he'll be out working, too.

"Just hope we don't get much more and let Christmas come by and the first of the year and get on with spring," Brown said.

In addition to clearing emergency routes Wednesday, crews in Aberdeen treated streets Tuesday night to prevent them from becoming too slick for drivers.
