After two days of snow, ice and even rain at some points, the worst of the winter storm is now behind us in the south east.
With over 20 cm of snow falling in the City of Estevan, crews will have their work cut out for them, as a major clean up has now started in the Energy City.
"City crews were out most of the night, our main priority right now is getting priority one streets cleared," explained Estevan's Roads and Drainage Manager, Norm Mack. "The city is rough, there's a lot of snow and its rutted, a lot of our streets in the outskirts were plugged. We concentrated on getting the hospital cleared and school zones so they're accessible to students."
"We'll go as long and as hard as we can, with the amount of break downs, how heavy the snow is and traffic problems, we'll be going as hard as we can to clean up the city."
Mack also had a reminder for those hitting the roads on Tuesday.
"There's a lot of equipment running around the city clearing snow, if you don't have a four wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicle, you're best to leave it in the garage today. Be patient with us because we'll be working long hours, it's a major cleanup."
Wellock Road has been punched open, but the city asks the public to avoid the area if possible due to continuous drifting snow.
With the worst of the storm out of the way, Environment Canada is also saying that good news is on the horizon.
"The system has weakened, but there is a lingering trough of low pressure over south east Saskatchewan and that will stick around on Tuesday," Meteorologist Dan Fulton said. "We're expecting snow off and on, but just a couple centimeters for the day."
"After the snow clears out on Tuesday evening, it's not a bad week shaping up. A bit chilly to start, but then a gradual warming trend with no significant snow in the forecast and we're looking at above zero by Sunday," Fulton concluded.
