Crews Work Around the Clock to Clear Snow

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- Thanks to all the snow and ice, road crews have been working around the clock to clean up the aftermath of this weekend's winter weather. 

"I imagine we got 4.5, maybe 5 inches yesterday, and another at least 3 today," said Dave Hidy, the president of Hidy's Towing & Snow Plowing, Inc.

To combat the first big snowfall of the season, this weekend a dozen of Hidy's plow trucks hit the streets and they've barely taken a break.

"I went home and took a brief nap and started this morning early," Hidy said.  

Hidy stayed busy Saturday plowing parking lots and salting streets. After a late night, he woke up Sunday to even more snow. 

"I got up and looked out the window and I had shoveled my driveway and sidewalk and there was several inches on it, so I had to make a lot of phone calls and get the guys rolling and we met early and have worked since," Hidy said. 

The continuous snow is also slowing down progress for the Ingham County Road Commission. They've been working around the clock and plan to head back out at 4 a.m. Monday to plow the main roads and start working on the neighborhoods.

For Hidy, the work is just beginning. "I imagine we're going to have to go out in the late p.m. or the early a.m.," he said. But he's happy. This snow means big business. Hidy hopes the winter weather is here to stay this season.
