For the first time since the heavy snow fell across the area on Friday and Saturday, the sunshine came out on Sunday. That allowed people to begin digging out.

Great progress was being made on area roadways by Sunday. Though many roads were still snow packed, folks were able to start getting around.

Though some rain and snow showers are in the forecast over the coming days, much milder temps are headed our way by the end of the week. That combined with lots of sunshine should allow for good melting of snow for several days.
