The snow emergency in Macomb is cancelled effective at 4 p.m. Friday.
Road conditions continue to get better in Macomb by the hour, but with the most snow fall that this city has seen in nearly two years, residents are still having to dig out.
When Michael Owell moved to Macomb just two days ago, he didn't think he'd be having to deal with this.
"Well you know, I'm from Vermont, so I really anticipated not having snow here, so I was surprised to find I had 6 inches of snow today," said Owell.
And just down the street Marshall Sullivan had been battling the snow too, even helping numerous residents clear their driveways.
"Counting last night, that's an endless number, I'd probably say probably about 30-35 people," said Sullivan.
Macomb Mayor Mike Inman says the city made it through the night without any major accidents and credits rapid response from road crews and the community for that.
"We had great cooperation from the citizens in getting off of the snow routes so we could get those cleared," said Mayor Inman.
And as for Owell's first impression of how things work during a snow emergency, in the midwest, it's a positive one.
"I was quite surprised, Pearl streets was one of the first streets that got cleared so I didn't have problems with access," said Owell.
