West Fargo (WDAY-TV) - It's been a full week since the Valley was slammed with snow. Some streets are still hard to pass, and seem to be narrowing each day.
Dunes of snow stretch across the valley, and across most roads in West Fargo. That doesn't it make it very easy to get where you're going.
Chuck Fremstad-Building Inspector: “Out here in the new edge of town it's pretty bad."
Fremstad treks through this mess quite a bit.
Chuck Fremstad: "Usually a couple times a day."
Some days are just better than others.
Chuck Fremstad: "Yesterday, I pretty much got stuck."
Fremstad was stuck right in the middle of town, where plows have been not once, not twice, but up and down numerous times since we were hit with snow.
Chuck Fremstad: "Well it's a little tougher the last few weeks since the streets got a little narrow."
Nobody is blaming public works. The real culprit, is this wind.
George Grossman-West Fargo Public Works: "The wind just plugs the roads up and it's impossible."
Even after pulling 12 hours shifts and using snow blowers the size of small barn…
George Grossman: “Actually we could use a bigger one here."
The snow just keeps coming back, making it hard for everyone to get around.
Chuck Fremstad: "It's part of the territory I guess."
But until the wind stops blowing it all in, the city will continue to work on cleaning it all out.
Chuck Fremstad: "There's no trees, there's nothing built up. We're on the edge of the prairie more or less."
West Fargo Public Works says it's working on widening the streets, but everything takes time.
