People in Lee County start to dig out of the snow


People in Lee County are still trying to dig out as the temperatures are dropping and the wind is blowing snow everywhere.

"Right now it is kind of crazy out right now. I didn't think this blizzard was going to happen but it actually came," said one Keokuk man.

Still, some people had to be out.

Bob Houseweart plows snow for a living, but, he doesn't encourage other people to be out on the roads.

"If you got four wheel drive it is not too bad but you got your regular old idiots out there trying to play gun for all, but they shouldn't be. I don't think anyone should be driving at all," said Houseweart.

Melissa Martin needed to make a last minute trip to the store Thursday night.

But, she agrees with's time to stay in.

"To make it to the hotel safely without sliding a whole lot. slipping and falling. (reporter) Get indoors right? Yes sir, and I'm not coming out anymore tonight," said Martin.

Road crews in both the city and county are running 12 hour shifts. They'll be out all night long, until the roads are safe.
