Small Town Works Together to Clear Snow

ARROWSMITH - After working the weekend shift at Bridgestone, Vernon Myers returned to his home in Arrowsmith late Monday night.

"It was pretty late. As a matter of fact, I had to take a guy home I carpool with because his car's in my garage. Couldn't even get in my driveway last night," said Myers.

On Tuesday, IDOT was still working to clear rural roads. IDOT workers estimate it took about seven and a half hours to clear the area of highway from St. Patrick's Church of Merna all the way to Arrowsmith.

"Tell you what; the roads were pretty good last night. We do appreciate the crews that were out working in all that," said Myers.

Myers woke up Tuesday morning, to start digging his way out, before heading across town to help his daughter.

"It's still pretty packed. I've got to push forward, back up, push forward. Then, you finally get to a low area, it ain't too bad, but there's not many low areas," said Myers.

Nearby, Jordan Zielsdorf faced the challenge of digging his car out, to make it to basketball practice at Ridgeview High in Colfax.

"My brother and I were out here for about 45 minutes before he went to get a different shovel because we had just a little spade and I'm glad. And then our brother came in and helped us from Lincoln," said Zielsdorf.

Family, friends and neighbors joined Zielsdorf in the effort to free his car.

"The top of it was pretty packed, the top of it, we had to slice into squares and then move it and at the bottom it was easy to get through," said Zielsdorf.

After nearly two hours of shoveling, Zielsdorf finally was able to drive out, and head to practice after conquering the snow.

"I woke up two hours early to go shovel this out because I know I have school tomorrow, so I had to shovel it out anyway," said Zielsdorf.
