The Prescott area received over six inches of new snow from the storm which went through the Upper Midwest early last week.
The snow began late Monday afternoon on Dec. 28 and went into early Wednesday, Dec. 30.
“We had to give out some parking tickets and the plow truck drivers had problems with garbage receptacles in the streets,” Prescott City Administrator Jayne Brand said, “but plowing through city streets went okay for the most part.”
The new snow and the large amount of it raised the possibility the snowmobile trails in Pierce County could finally open for the first time in long while. Tom Lubich of the Prescott SnoBees Snowmobile Club said that grooming had begun on the trails last week and took place through much of the New Year’s weekend. But he sounded more hopeful than certain that the trails would be open for this weekend.
