'Not Too Bad,' Copenhagen Residents Say As They Dig Out From StormPosted: Updated:
The snow plows in Copenhagen were out in full force Wednesday night as operators emptied parking lots and kept the roads clear.
For Kevin Groff of Groff's Towing, it's the first time he's plowed the roads in about a month.
"Two years ago, we were talking about several feet on the ground," he said. "This year, we're lucky to have four or five inches at a time, so we'll take what we can get."
As the snow piled up, residents like Tanner Souva spent part of the night digging out the driveway.
"It's not too heavy when you get the light stuff," she said. "Like this right here is light, but when the snow plows push it onto the sidewalk it does tend to get heavy."
While this winter has been mostly unseasonable up until this point, more residents say they expect this type of weather for early January.
"It hasn't been that bad of a winter so far," Copenhagen resident Robert Zeigler said. "I guess we were due. It had to come sometime and we're used to it here."
Even though this is the first snowfall in a while, it's not the worst people have seen around this time of year.
"It's not too bad for a north country storm as everyone says," Souva said.
"It's not too bad," Zeigler said. "Stay warm and try to keep out of it."
