Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. — Highway Superintendent Jeff Hanson said his crew is almost finished plowing the roads, with just a few yet to do. State roads are clear and a bit slushy at this point, he said. He cautioned all roads could be a little slick in some places.

The highway crew was called in at 12:30 this morning to pre-treat the roads. Mr. Hanson said the heaviest snow was between 3 and 5 a.m. “It ended quicker than we thought it would,” he said.

“Now we are hoping for it to warm up,” he said.

Town offices will open at 10 a.m.
