Thursday’s blizzard in Kodiak dumped only about six inches of snow, but it was enough to keep city snow removal crews busy throughout the night and early this morning.
Chris Lund is a City of Kodiak Public Works maintenance supervisor. He said large-scale snow removal operations require a great deal of preparation on the part of the city.
Lund said Public Works deals mostly with frozen pipes when there isn’t a lot of snow on the ground.
According to the National Weather Service, more snow is expected in Kodiak this weekend, with possible accumulations of up to another six inches.
