LAKE OZARK, Mo. -- As snowplow operators cleared roads after a 20-inch snowfall, they had no choice but to push snow on top of cars parked on the roads.
“We're not really set up for this kind of snowfall in this area,” said Lake Ozark’s Director of Public Works Matt Mickalik. ”I have enough guys that I can split them into two shifts and they work 12-hour shifts.”
Crews here were hard at it on Wednesday, pushing the snow anywhere they could.
“We're nibbling away at it. Everything is going pretty good<” said Mickalik.
Their only hope is more snow doesn't come before they can deal with the mess that they already have.
There is no timeline as to when the snow will be cleared on all the roads in the area, but until that time people are still being asked to keep off the roads if possible.
“The problem we have is the snow is so heavy and so deep that after the trucks make a pass up or down the road, the wind rows get so tall that the trucks have a hard time moving it,” said Mickalik.
