The recent above average temperatures haven’t really allowed us to see much in terms of snowfall, which also means snow plow drivers have been busy doing other work this winter.
As of early January, the Ohio Valley has only seen about two good snowfalls.
Chris Yensen, one of the snow-plow drivers and manager of Yensen Landscape Supply, says normally he’s plowed about ten to fifteen times by early January — but this winter season he’s been busy with his landscaping business because temperatures have been on the warm side.
He’s been busy working on typical spring or summer projects like building a retaining wall or a deck, and he doesn’t mind this weather and that it can last as long as Mother Nature wants.
“I’d rather be doing this than plowing snow. I’ll take the warm weather all year as far as I’m concerned,” said Yensen. “It’s not cold. I’m not out at 3 o’ clock in the morning trying to clean somebody’s lot up.”
Now these warm temperatures aren’t going to last forever, and there’s still another three months left of the winter season. Stay with the Stormtracker 7 team for the latest forecasts.
