Cleanup begins in northwest Kansas after winter storm

GOODLAND, Kansas – Main Street, like much of the city of Goodland, is completely snowpacked.

Residents tell KSN they’re grateful for the snow but finding a place to put it all is a struggle.

“The hardest part was trying to shovel out of the front of our house; the garage, but other than that it was good. I enjoyed it,” said Ana Johnson, who works at High Plains Heating and Air Conditioning Inc.

They’re grateful because Johnson, like many others, say the area needed the moisture.

“It’s a blessing for all the farmers to get all this snow,” said Trace Waugh, who works at High Plains Office Supply.

“You know, there’s a little bit of having to deal with where we’re going to put it but other than that I am so happy we got it,” Johnson said.

“Winter crops especially, because this will help produce good winter crops and that’s something we haven’t had in a while,” Waugh said.

The city has worked quickly to clear things up.

Now residents and businesses are lending a hand.

“The businesses are trying their best at getting the sidewalks cleared,” Waugh said.

“The city is very good about trying to get our roads clean and all that,” Johnson said.

“As crews work to clear the streets in town, crews have also worked night and day to clear highways and the interstate.

K-DOT tells KSN even if the road is open to take extra caution.
