(CHADRON)-After the foot and a half of snow that got dumped on the northern Nebraska Panhandle and southern South Dakota, snow removal efforts are ongoing around the city of Chadron and other surrounding areas. Chadron public works director Milo Rust says that crews would have been done by now if this had been an average storm. It was larger, however, than the area has seen in several years, so he says street crews are still hard at work.

Another problem crews keep running into are drivers who are out and about simply to “play” or “looky-loo” as Rust calls it. He says the city feels bad that street clean-up sometimes involves extra snow getting left in driveways, but that is the reality of a large snow such as this.

Rust says it’s important to let street crews work unheeded as much as possible and to utilize the list of contractors available at City Hall for those who may need some extra snow removal help.

Despite clean-up efforts, Rust says city streets are still a bit dangerous.

Rust says the snowstorm did bring needed moisture to the area.

For those who need snow removal help, call City Hall for a list of contractors.
