A blanket of snow covered Winnipeg Saturday morning as residents dug out the shovels to dig themselves out.

The city received between 5-7 cm and has snow-clearing crews and sanders out on the streets.

Truck plowing continues on priority 1 regional streets and sanding will continue as conditions warrant. Snow-clearing options began around midnight, according to a release from the city.

Following that, crews will turn their attention to priority 2 collector and bus routes.

The city is monitoring conditions on residential streets to determine if spot plowing is needed in areas where drifting may have occurred.

Sidewalk plowing on priority 1, 2 and 3 streets began at 7 a.m. and will continue throughout the day. The clearing of back lanes is also underway.

Citizens are urged drive to conditions and to use caution in and around snow clearing equipment.
