BARTLESVILLE, Okla. - About half an inch of snow fell in Washington County Wednesday.
In Bartlesville, the heaviest of the snow fell around 11 a.m.
Roadways remained wet and clear for much of the day. All of the snow that accumulated on the grass melted by sunset.
Crews were called in early to monitor road conditions across the city.
"This is really the first event we've had this [season] that we've actually had to get the trucks out," said Bartlesville public works director Keith Henry.
Henry said because of the mild winter, the city had an abundance, about 1,500 tons of salt and sand mixture, that could be spread on streets by seven trucks, although conditions are not forecast to require as much.
Meanwhile, residents managed to not let the snow get in their way.
Brian Black, owner of Bambino's Restaurant in downtown Bartlesville, swept the snow covered sidewalks right before lunch hour.
Black expected less business because of the snow, but had no complaints.
"I don't mind the snow. It's okay. I'm from St. Louis, so it doesn't bother me as much," he said.
With a threat of freezing rain looming, Henry said crews are working in 12-hour shifts and will monitor conditions overnight.
