Mayor George Endicott says reports from staff and citizens show they did a good job handling Tuesday’s sudden storm: “First thing they did was keep the graveyard crews on to go ahead and be able to double the plow capacity.  So we were doing more plowing yesterday than we typically do we usually do a mix of cinders; and this time it was almost all plowing and by mid-afternoon we had almost all of the roads down to bare pavement. Of course the warming up helped as well."  Endicott says they also had several reports of heart attacks because of people trying to shovel the heavy snow. Medical experts throughout Central Oregon are urging people not to shovel if they have major health issues.
