Crews Battling 'Debbie Sue's' Leftovers

City of Coeur d'Alene crews are out in force battling 'Debbie Sue.' For those of you not familiary with CDA's method of naming storms, 'Debbie Sue' is the fourth storm of the year to blow through, and since the storms are named in alphabetical order, yesterday's storm had to have a 'D' name.

The lake city got over ten inches of snow in the past couple days and Street Maintenance Department crews face a tough challenge managing such a great amount of snow falling in a short period of time.

Crews are focusing first on arterial streets, collector streets, and hills, and then residential streets. Barring any equipment failure, by tonight all residential areas will be completed.

For more information, check out the Street Department website.
