"I thought they did a very nice job," Miller said.
Elsewhere in Effingham County, County Engineer Greg Koester said crews were helped by the fact that daytime temperatures have generally been above freezing the past few weeks.
"A March snow is always better than a December or January snow," Koester said. "If the ground had been frozen, it would have been much worse from a clearing standpoint."
Koester said his crews were out from 1 to 10 p.m. Sunday before coming back at 5:30 a.m. Monday and working through most of the day. He said, as a result, nearly all county roads are mostly clear.
"The only problem people might have Monday night is blowing snow," Koester said.
Effingham police were busy during the height of the storm Sunday afternoon, responding to four wrecks during a hourlong period during early afternoon. Details of those accidents are available on Page 5A.
