Heavy February Snow blankets region
February 18, 2021
It snowed, and snowed, and snowed...then snowed some more. A light dusting of snow in the Touchet Valley last last week was added to by Mother Nature over the weekend, continuing with steady snow flurries on Monday and Tuesday, causing Dayton's Main Street to be reduced to a single lane in both directions, with healthy berms piled in the center. Warming temperatures on Tuesday and the absence of further snowfall gave city and county crews a chance to remove the berms and get caught up for the time being. Late Tuesday afternoon, Main Street was bare and wet with all lanes open.
