A sleety/rainy/snowy event took place late evening on January 3rd to ring in the new year and extreme cold.

The event created a slushy ice layer below a ½” or so of snow across the metro. It was important to plow and get the ice and snow off the parking before the brutally cold -25 degree F temperatures came in.
