BRUSH VALLEY (KDKA) — In some places of western Pennsylvania on Thursday, people were digging out from under more than a foot of snow – while those in other places swept it away with nothing more than a broom.
One of the hardest-hit places was in Indiana County.
In Brush Valley, the Ray family is still digging out from Wednesday’s snow.
“It’s not as fun as I thought it would be,” said Amber Ray.
She thinks about eight inches fell in her family’s driveway. So, Ray and her brother spent yet another day of their holiday break helping clear the driveway. Not sure how long the job will take.
“I don’t even know, it might take another hour,” said Ralph Ray, Amber’s brother.
While main roads are clear, side streets were still packed with snow. One thing is clear though, it’s certainly no day for a walk in the park.
“Just cleaning off the cars, you know… got a bunch of snow,” said Brandon Waddell, another resident of Brush Valley. “I got that one cleaned off already, now I’m Working on this one.”
Snow blanketed the entire area on Wednesday, putting a damper on the plans of those who hoped to do some after-Christmas shopping.
For those in Indiana County, they may have gotten the most snow but they also didn’t seem to mind.
“I kind of hoped it would come a little bit later, miss a few more days of school,” said Ralph.
