The Door County snow cleanup crew is back at it again on Sunday and Monday from another snowstorm. When the storm is finished, it’s expected to drop between three and six inches in Door County. Drivers have been out since about noon on Sunday and will stop sometime in the evening. Door County Highway Patrol Superintendent Thad Ash says they are mostly focused on clearing highways and major roads Sunday. They will go back out again at about one or two in the morning for a more wholesale cleanup. With all the snow and freezing rain recently, the highway department is still in good supply of salt and sand but if the storm cycle continues like it is for the rest of the winter, supplies may be in trouble. Ash says the freezing rain really took a toll on the salt.
Ash added the lack of snow in December helped the keep the supplies in good shape for now. The snow equipment has stayed in good working order for the most part. Drivers have been able to fix any problems with the snow vehicles that they’ve had.
