POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) — Pocatello is looking at receiving 10 inches of snow Monday, and the snow just keeps falling.
The wind still hasn’t died down either. It’s blowing and still keeping road conditions dangerous. The more southeastern counties continue to get hit, too.
Here’s some shots earlier Monday from Preston. The snowfall total there right now is about 11 to 12 inches in most parts.
Cars were completely covered in driveways, it was foggy and poor visibility for most of the day. People in Preston say it’s been at least four to five years since they’ve seen a storm dump so much snow so fast in the area, but even though the roads are bad, there is an upside to a lot of snow.
“We haven’t been able to have this much snow for Christmas for quite a while,” said Samantha Olsen, a Preston resident. “I’m excited that it’s a white Christmas with a lot of snow. Then the kids love it. They’ve been out playing and they absolutely love it.”
Now, I actually have some family in Preston. I spoke to them just a little bit ago and they said the snow had died off quite a bit in the past couple hours.
They’re not getting hit quite as heavy as they were earlier. Again, it’s also continuing to pile on here in Pocatello.
The southeastern part of the state is definitely seeing their share of snow.
