Locals Hard at Work

It’s been a day of digging out for residents in Southeastern Ohio.

Yesterday’s snowfall has homeowners digging out their cars, driveways, and sidewalks.  Local resident David Bryan and his two friends kept busy this morning shoveling sidewalks for all of their neighbors.  They say anytime there is a measurable amount of snow, they are always willing to help.

"Pretty much snow shoveling everybody’s walks. Figure people can use the help being it’s so cold out and everything. A lot of people don’t like to go out when it’s cold so we like to get out there, and try to help people out, get the walks shoveled for them, put salt down for them, that kind of thing," said Bryan. 

But adults were not the only ones who shoveled their way out, local area kids, like Joshua and Caeden, enjoyed their day off from school by helping out.

"We are shoveling around the tires plus getting the ice around my dad’s tires," said Joshua. 

"I have been helping those guys shovel around their dad’s car," said Caeden. 

Joshua and Caeden said, after shoveling, they plan to build a snowman and play in the snow for the rest of the day.
