City Of Omaha Calls In "The Contractors" To Help Clear Snow

As usual, the contractors will concentrate on residential areas of Omaha, though, for this event, they are working earlier.

"We want to get them in there and give them a chance to work before everyone comes home from work," City Engineer Todd Pfitzer told KFAB Radio News.

Pfitzer says there are some neighborhood streets that are clear thanks to the wind, but there are also places where there is drifting.

He says the wind-strewn snow is a different kind of challenge.

"We are not getting a large volume of snow which is good, but it is blowing back onto the streets. So we have to run our major routes and continue to run our major routes;" Pfitzer said.

Over 100 trucks are doing battle with the white stuff and the wind.
