FAYETTE COUNTY (KDKA)- People in Fayette County are still digging out from this weekend’s snow storm.
According to the National Weather Service, unofficial snowfall came in with 30 inches in Mill Run, 24.5 inches in Farmington and 24 inches in Uniontown and South Connellsville.
Other areas in Fayette County saw anywhere from 16 to 20 inches of snow.
“It was bad. I almost had a heart attack trying to shovel myself out,” Susie Zebley said.
“When you live in this part of the country, you got to deal with it,” Chuck Gentile said.
The Uniontown Street Department has been working around the clock to clear the roads. The school district cancelled classes today – one reason is because of the high volume of snow and students would have to stand in the street to catch school buses.
But, the city has a plan to get rid of the snow.
“We’ve had some problems getting rid of it. Right now, we’re going to try to get some of it off the streets and truck it out tonight,” Uniontown City Councilman Phillip Michael said.
Meanwhile, the heavy snow represents dollar signs for one resident. Jim Griffith has been going non-stop since Saturday.
“If you have a snow plow, you’re popular,” he said.
The good news is most of the major roads and side streets are clear. But, with all this snow it’s going to be awhile before this community recovers.
Mail delivery was delayed in both Fayette and Greene counties due to the snow.
Hospitals reported dealing with slip and fall victims, but didn’t really see any injuries from vehicle crashes.
