Scottsbluff avoids blizzard conditions

Posted: Updated:

Snow and wind whip through KOTA Territory this weekend, closing some highways in the panhandle.

While the storm dropped anywhere from 4 to 10 inches in the area ... There was not a big need for snowplows in Scottsbluff.

The high winds were relentless, creating 2-5 foot drifts in some areas.  But by mid-morning, the sun had melted most of the city's roads.

While the weather remains blustery, at least one local says he's happy we're getting moisture.

"We need the moisture around here and we'll take what we can get," says Marc Land, of Lang's Lawn Care.  "But we sure would like to have more."

Scottsbluff police say one small, weather-related accident was reported in the early morning hours.
