It may not seem like a lot of snow - just more than four inches - but it's the most Lincoln's seen since early December.  It means much of the city spent Wednesday cleaning the dust off their snow blowers.

Michael Selivanoff and his crew started clearing properties around 4 a.m. 

"It was pretty cold then," he said. "Now that the sun is out, we're sweating and complaining, driving around with the window down."

A fairly slow winter means the 20 plus homes they're scheduled to clear will equal a much needed addition to their paycheck.

"It gives us work, something to do.  And, it's nice to be outside," he added.

Dan Brenneise was digging out for a different reason.  He's helping his brother who recently suffered a debilitating construction injury.

"He'd do whatever he could for me, so I'm just doing what I can," Brenneise said.

As for the streets, here is the latest from the city: 

A snow removal district parking ban will be in effect from 12:01 to 7 a.m. Thursday, through Monday in the City's eight snow removal districts.  In these areas, snow is plowed into windrows, loaded into trucks and hauled out of the area between midnight and 7 a.m.  To assist with snow removal, parking is prohibited on both sides of the street in the districts, which include streets in Downtown/Haymarket, University Place; Havelock; Bethany, College View; 11th and "G"; 17th and Washington; and 25th and Sumner.  Maps can be found at lincoln.ne.gov.

 To assist downtown residents during snow removal district parking bans, City Parking Services will offer free overnight parking at Center Park Garage, 1100 "N" St.  The service is being offered in an effort to reduce citations and towed vehicles in the downtown area during parking bans. The service will be offered from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. when the City is under a snow removal district parking ban.  Customers will be charged for any time beyond 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. at the posted garage rate. Vehicles that remain in the facility past 10 a.m. will be charged for the entire time the vehicle was in the facility.
