KOKOMO, Ind. (Nov. 20, 2015)-- Areas north of Indianapolis have the best chance of seeing measurable snow this weekend, possibly more than an inch. In Kokomo Friday, crews wasted no time breaking up salt and getting trucks ready to go just in case.
The very mention of Saturday snow was enough to sour even the friendliest folks, though.
“I should’ve left for Texas a week ago,” said Ron Carter.
“I’m not too excited about it. The older I get, the less I like snow,” said Karen Kinsey, “I’d rather not have any.”
At the Kokomo Street Department, crews broke up salt still left over from last year. By the end of the shift Friday afternoon, they’ll have ten trucks loaded and ready to go if needed on Saturday.
Foreman Bob Trobaugh said the pavement is still warm and that helps.
“If we just get a dusting, it’ll melt it. And we won’t have to salt. If we do salt, we won’t have to salt real heavy,” he said.
If more than an inch falls in Kokomo, salt trucks will roll out. Drivers are on standby.
It’s all work for nothing, according to Rebecca Marler, a snow skeptic.
“I don’t believe it until I see it,” she said.
