Crews work to plow feet of compacted snow to open the roads in Yellowstone National Park.
CODY — Two small Wyoming tourist towns at the edge of Yellowstone National Park are celebrating successful fundraising efforts to cover the cost of plowing part of the roads leading into the park, assuring an on-time opening for their gates this spring.
A notice from the post office on Monday informed Skillestad that she had to clear the street of snow in front of her mailbox, and it advised her to “call the city.”
Sherman Oland shows how a city plow heaped a big berm of snow in front of the sidewalk he had cleared along Babcock Boulevard in the Heights.
Diane Skillestad had her camera ready to show photos of a mail truck that got stuck on Poly Drive in front of her house on Monday. She ended up paying someone $45 Wednesday to plow the street in front of the mailbox.
