Clean up ending or just beginning?
City of Morris crews worked in bitterly cold temperatures on Tuesday to clean up some of the snow that fell on -- and blew into -- Morris on Sunday and early Monday.
Between 8 a.m. Sunday and 8 a.m. Monday, the West Central Research and Outreach Center recorded that 4.5 inches of snow fell in the area, along with another half-inch of precipitation.
Making the clean up work even tougher were high winds and temperatures that reached a high of minus-10 degrees on Monday and Tuesday and bottomed out at minus-22 degrees.
But that might just be the start of another round of snow and cold. Snow began falling again Tuesday afternoon, there is a 30 percent to 40 percent chance of more snow on Thursday, and snow is possible on Friday night into Saturday. It appears a white Christmas is all but guaranteed.
Plus, Thursday's predicted high temperature of 10 degrees could be the balmy reading of the week.
