Road crews have been out this morning clearing roads and putting sand down on intersections as the region gets its first real snowfall of the season.
Scotsbluff Public Works Director Mark Bohl says there is enough snow his crews are moving to their normal windrowing procedure Thursday afternoon. That means piling it in the middle of the street with breaks at the intersection and then picking it up in the morning.
In the rural areas County Highway Superintendent Linda Grummert says they are thankful the wind did not blow as originally forecast. Grummert says they are seeing more snow in Scottsbluff than some other areas and are simply trying to keep the paved roads clear and sanded.
An estimated four inches of snow has fallen at the KNEB studio, and the amounts are likely more in higher elevations.
