Residents digging out after latest snow storm

Posted: Updated:

Temperatures are expected to dip as residents continue to dig out from Wednesday's snow storm.

The sound of snow blowers and shovels echoed throughout our area Thursday. Nigel Murrell drove across town to help his moms best friend dig out.

"Its pretty thick right now because the pile up at the end of the driveway but its pretty hard to push. She stays by herself so that's one of the things I find interesting to do for her because not body does it," said resident Nigel Murrell.  

Inches upon inches of snow blanketed sidewalks and streets. Many students had the day off.
These young men where helping their granddad dig out.

"It took a little while but I got a snow blower so I had to dig all this out. This was like this high all the way up so it's a job," said resident Roye Moorer.  

Mr. Moorer told me he was teaching his grandsons how to work.

"We might get a little cold but try to work through it but I'm not going to let them get to cold. I sent them in the house a little while ago because they will try to impress me and end up frozen"
     
The snow is not expected to melt anytime soon. These men were hired to clear away snow at homes owned by the bank.  They say it's be a tough task

"Very hard a lot of snow drifts and stuff like that," said resident Chuck Strange.

All this snow has created a lot of exercise for many people.
