STORM OF THE YEAR.
NORMALLY RESIDENTS WOULD BE MUTTERING BA-HUMBUG, BUT
THIS YEAR MANY ARE SINGING HALLELUAH.
KXLY-4'S ALEX LEFRIEC, WORKING FOR YOU, TO FIND OUT
WHY THE AREA IS READY FOR THE SNOWFALL.
IT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN A WHITE CHRISTMAS...

DEREK PREBBLE RELIES ON HIS BLADE DURING THE WINTER

DARRICK PREBLE/ PREBLE PAINTING 50;40 snow is a huge
part of our income! we have guys sitting around without
any work and when it snows it makes everybody happy
AND HE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE READY FOR THE WHITE STUFF.
THE CITY OF SPOKANE AND THE SPOKANE VALLEY BEGAN DE-ICING

The snow plows and deicers will begin with emergency
routes, bridges, arterioles and hills and then move
on to flatter residential streets.
