Snow plows, residents digging out in Upper Sandusky

Posted: Updated:

Old Man Winter is making a big entrance south of Toledo.

Wyandot and Seneca Counties are getting walloped with their first blanket of snow for the season.

Both counties were under Blizzard Warnings.

So far the roads are slippery, but drivers are taking it slow and thankfully there are no major accidents to report.

For many people, this snow is a sight for sore eyes.

Plows are out in full force for the first time in a long time.

County and ODOT crews are clearing snow off main roads.

Private plows are hitting the parking lots.

"We're prepared," says Jeremiah Magee, owner of Premium Turf. "After last year, we've had a year and a half no snow, so we're ready for it."

In Tiffin, several inches coated roads, wreaths, and driveways.

"The more the better," says Mike Longanbach, who lives in Tiffin.

Longanbach says his snow blower fired up no problem after not getting used at all last winter.


"I started it up last week to get prepared for winter, changed the oil in it all of that stuff so I was ready to go."

In Upper Sandusky, one guy forgot to pack his wiper so he used his hands to clear his windshield.

But Steve Webster was prepared.

"I don't mind it as long as I don't have to go anywhere. Sitting at home is alright," says Webster. "But I had to run here to the grocery store to get some stuff. The rest of the day I plan to sit at home and watch television."

"I'm not real happy about it but you know things like this happen," says Shirley Rawlins who is heading home from work.

"Actually I have missed it a little bit but I was hoping this would've come yesterday Christmas Day," says Ben Sturgeon who walked to the grocery store Wednesday.

Justin Stoneburner volunteered to clear the sidewalk in front of a business called Fitness in Motion.

He shoveled in shorts!

"I just got done doing my workout and I told her I'd shovel her sidewalk for her so she didn't have to do it," says Stoneburner. "I like it but I wish it would've been on a day we had school so we could miss school."
