A post office worker shakes the ice off the Overgaard Post Office flagpole before raising the flag. More snow is predicted for this coming weekend.
Off and on snowing continues for the Heber Overgaard and surrounding areas. The snow received this week has made for inclement driving conditions on state routes as well as treacherous for those who live in more remote areas.
State and local road snowplows are out in force maintaining a low buildup of snow.
However, the low temperatures at night re-freeze the melt in or from the sides of the road that ice up at night creating hazardous driving conditions.
Chains and four-wheel drives were recommended earlier this week for those traversing SR 260 westbound out of Heber Overgaard toward Forest Lakes. More snow is predicted for Friday and Saturday with highs near or at 40 and the lows around 15 degrees.
