Snow light, ice persists on roads
Chris Cook - Forks Forum photo
Quillayute Valley School District workers climbed atop the Auto Tech building on S. Forks Ave. to clear snow from the buildings meeting room roof. Crews were pictured on buildings across downtown Forks to move snow off roofs in danger of damage, perhaps collapsing due to the heavy snowfall of the past week. Clearing roofs of snow is a job usually only seen in Spokane and other Washington cities with colder weather and more snowfall than Western Washington.
