LANSING, MI (WLNS) – It might feel like the beginning of Spring outside today but companies know this tease of warmer weather quickly turns into a winter storm.
“Whatever mother nature brings, we’ll try to take it away,” Clinton County Road Commission Director Joe Pulver said.
In preparation for the snow, Pulver says they will be working through the day and night over the next couple of days to keep roads safe.
“We have people who monitor the roads around the clock and as we need people we’ll pull people in and address it,” Pulver said.
Roads are not the only concern though, this heavy snow could effect power lines and branches as well, which means power outages can hit families at home.
“We have crews at the ready to make restorations as quickly as possible,” Lansing Board of Water and Light Amy Adamy said.
The best way for customers to watch out for power outages or report any problems is through the power outage map on BWL’s website.
“We’re prepared and we also want to make sure our customers are prepared with us,” Adamy said.
The snow should stop on Thursday, but roads will take longer to clear up, so drivers are cautioned to continue taking it slow on the roads.
“If we get the high end of snow that’s predicted, it is going to take us two, to two and a half days to clear everything off so we’ll still be at it for a while,” Pulver said.
Pulver hopes the early salting will make for a quicker clean up before the heavy snow starts to settle.
