The Energy City is applying itself to the shovel once again as it digs out from the second snowstorm of the month.
As the system moves on to pester Manitoba, Regional Meteorologist Robin Dyck with Environment Canada explained what we could see in the next few days.
"There's some low cloud and freezing drizzle left in behind, and with the type of pattern we're in now, we're expecting a few little impulses to come through the province in the next few days. There will be a chance of some more flurries and some more showers. We do have some temperatures in and around the freezing mark, or just above, so there's that potential of some showers in there as well."
She noted that, due to the nature of the storm, which included wind gusts up to 70 kmh accompanied by snow, establishing an exact snowfall number is rather useless.
"I'm saying we got anywhere from five to fifteen centimeters, but because of that blowing snow, you could've had a very large amount or very little. There'll be bare spots, there'll be drifts, so it's very hard to pin an exact number of how much we got."
However, she did provide a wild ballpark figure to wrap our minds around, to get a glimpse of what the storm left behind.
"Estevan reported 7 centimeters, Regina reported officially about five," Dyck said, adding that other locations around the province reported as much as 15.
"But, most places could have been much more or much less than that, just because of the drifting nature of the snow blowing and the strong winds."
It was an early morning crews with the City of Estevan as well, as they work to get the roads back to normal.
"Friday we just maintained the roads and made sure everything was open. For the most part, the streets did blow clear, and a lot of the snow blew around buildings and parking lots. We had the sanding trucks out last night, and we were out at 3:00 this morning with graders and loaders, just doing some heavier areas," shared Roads and Drainage Manager Norm Mack.
"For the most part, the snow is packed, and it's (the weather) going to be mild. We're going to let mother nature handle most of it. We're not going to be hauling a whole lot of snow out of town, we're just going to help it all melt and clear some heavy areas with graders and loaders."
He also advised caution, as although the sanding trucks have been hard at work, the roads are still icy.
