The roads look pretty good as of midnight. Some of the higher areas are still getting snow, and it hasnât stopped raining in some areas. The National Weather Service is still predicting 7 to 11 inches possible for the nightâs totals. Copper Basin Road and the Thumb Butte area are well on the way to meeting that prediction. Crews will work through the end of the storm and beyond to ensure the roads are clear. The employees of the Street Maintenance Division would like to thank Councilman Blair for riding along in a 10-wheel snow plow for a good part of the evening. Thank you for your support, Councilman!
