It's a dry winter no more, as several inches of snow have fallen across the region and more is on the way for the weekend, laying fresh powder on icy streets, making it a bit challenging for some drivers to get around.
"All roads and side roads, it's pretty slick everywhere," Spokane resident Bob Guevara said, adding the snow is proving to be a struggle no matter what kind of car you drive.
"The light snow on top of the ice is pretty slick. I had a little bit of a hard time even with a four wheel vehicle," he said.
Plows have been on the roads since around 4:30 a.m. Friday, working to clear them with de-icer and sand.
"We're doing the arterial streets, the hill routes and the STA bus routes," city spokesperson Julie Happy said.
Happy said for the time being plows will mostly stay focused on those areas. The only time they will make their way to residential streets is if the city moves to a stage two event, "which has six inches on the ground and more snow anticipated in the same snow event," she explained.
Spokane resident John Michaels says for now his neighborhood streets are fine, but what has him worried is after all this snow starts to melt.
"What will happen is it will cause some pretty bad ruts," he said.
As the snow continues to fall Michaels is keeping the weather in stride.
"It's winter," he said. "We can't control Mother Nature can we?"
