The Plowing company also does our Sanding. They will be onsite in the very early morning hours to do what sanding we will need. Morning View and View have enough residual sand to handle tonight (will add sand only if needed, but county will probably get to it first), TH's streets will be treated first, then Single Family roads, only if needed (county may get to them first). Plowing will only occur if there is significant snow accumulation.
