It’s slow going as crews work their way through neighborhoods to pick up limbs from winter storm

With tens of thousands of pounds of branches stacked up after this month’s winter storm, clean up crews have had their work cut out for them.

Winter Storm Gia may be a memory, but its impact on the Shawnee Mission area lingers.

Crews conducting curbside pick up of branches brought down under the weight of snow and ice from the storm are in the time-consuming process of making their way through local neighborhoods – but it will likely be more than a week before they’ve completed their rounds.
