Small Iowa Town Managing the Snowfall, With Even More on the Way
GILBERT, Iowa -- Gary Steel makes up half of the town of Gilbert's snow removal crew. Despite the lack of manpower, the small town’s streets are clear. “It's four to six hours to clean the town, depending on the situation,” said Steel. Steel has been working in city maintenance for over 30 years, so if he sounds a bit nonchalant about probably breaking the February snow record with Tuesday night’s storm, it's because he's seen something similar before…even if it's been a few years.
