thanks, tommie-- more to come. for now, officials are stressing safety to people. they say not to panic, but rather be patient. city officials want to remind residents to conserve water through the evening. and, residents who live in the parts of the community that are unlikely to get power restored--need to monitor their home temperature. officials don't think freezing pipes should be a concern, but they want to remind people to not let their house get below 30 degrees. "it's amazing not even four, five days ago we were wearing short sleeve t-shirts now we have a foot of snow and we're worried about people being cold in their house...what do ya do," said sioux center community high school principal, gary mceldowney. in the next few days the city will make permananet repairs to the damaged substation. in addition to the second substation, a temporary substation has been set up to help residents still without power. siouxland seeing white out conditions for the first snowfall this winter. no surprise, as meterologist ben dorenbach has been tracking it for the past week. ben, calm conditions right now
usually a cold snap will follow a major snowfall like yesterday's, and that's exactly what happened! registered sub-zero low temperatures early this morning, and quite a few of our evening wind chills are close to those very same marks. see graphics. up in 10 minutes thanks, ben look forward to your forecast and as ben just alluded to the first winter storm of the season blanketed iowa in snow last night and this morning. more than a foot of snow covered several towns in northern iowa. the central part of the state saw between four and eight inches of powder on the ground. road crews were working through the night to clear some streets.
but state department of transportation officials say travel is still not advised on many roads. speaking of traveling city plows have been working hard to stay on top of yesterday's storm. they've been working 24/7 to get the job done. they work 12-hour shifts... 7 a-m to 7 p-m... and then 7 p-m to 7 a-m. there are almost 50 pieces of snow equipment in the sioux city streets department, with 18 of those being the spreader trucks. they drop salt, and sand... and have blades to plow those streets. they're the ones first on the streets and last on the streets. "they're out there on the nights, they're out there on the weekends, they're out there on the holidays- time away from their family and friends and events so i think highly of them," said sioux city streets superintendent, ed pickens. he says teamwork is big for their department. the driver we followed, has been plowing sioux city's streets for 5-years. well it wouldn't of been a lawn mower waking many people up today. but something just as noisy, a snow blower. it's officialy that time of year.
the first winter storm of the season brought plenty of snow. and with that, plenty of shoveling. ktiv's sam curtiss caught up with some doing just that, sam? well, i think i found the one person who doesn't mind shoveling. at least if you compare it to lawn mowing. that storm yesterday dumped nearly half a foot on sioux city. many were clearing off their driveways and sidewalks. a mother-daughter duo tag teamed their driveway so they could get to the store to buy thanksgiving turkeys. "one for family and one for a neighbor of my daughters," said ruthie waurren. "they're a little hard up for money.i think i'm going to buy two turkeys and two pies." ruthie there is almost 81 years old too. she's still shoveling snow. and she's quite the character. at 80, you'd be surprised how busy she keeps herself. her garage is a workshop of wonders. i'll have that story at 10 tonight. can't wait, thanks sam.
but with fresh snow on the ground, many kids had a lot of fun today.. "oh my gosh," said a sledder. "watch out," screamed the sledder. seratoma park in sioux city was packed with sledders and a few snowboarders. many coming out to enjoy the snow before it melts. seratoma park is one of two public places in sioux city to legally sled, the other is grandview park. some say it's a great family atmosphere and it was tough to find a kid who didn't enjoy it. "pretty fun but once you wipe out on a snowboard it kind of hurts," said tristan monk. "it was intense at first because the snow just hit ya, ya know," said dominic eastman signs at those parks designate where and when you can sled. triple-a released its annual thanksgiving travel outlook today.. and if you're planning a holiday trip.. the data indicates.. you can plan on a couple of things -- lower fuel prices.. and a lot of company.. jay gray has more..

just gets the foot down - those two connected twice for scores. but k-state shuts out the cyclones in the second half - scores with 42 seconds to go to tie the game - then on the ensuing iowa state possession - they force the fumble on lanning - wildcats recover - and kick the game- winning 42-yard field goal. meltdown in manhattan - iowa state falls, 38-35. the quest for a national championship started today for morningside. the top-ranked mustangs opened up the n-a-i-a football championship series against saint xavier of illinois. both morningside and the cougars lost in the semifinal round of last year's playoffs. someone's going home in the first round this year - on a snowy day at olsen stadium. st. xavier got out to a 14-nothing lead in the first quarter - john rhode finds dennis vilimek for a 16 yard touchdown - rhode threw 7
touchdown passes on the day. second quarter - mustangs down 21- 10 - but some great blocking downfield for connor niles - 27 yards - morningside took a 3-point lead into the half. but st. xavier comes roaring back in the 4th quarter - stephen simms - the cougars have a 54-40 lead with 6 minutes to go. here's morningside - scoring twice in the final four and a half minutes - ryan kasdorf to jason vanderkooi for the game-tying score with under a minute to go. we would go four, yes, four overtimes - but after the mustang defense holds - tyler kavan finishes things off with a 13 yard touchdown run. a combined 13-hundred yards of offense - over 200 plays - but it's morningside moving on in comeback fashion - what a game, 75-69. after we came back from two touchdowns, we believed we were going to win the game," said morningside head coach steve ryan. "we had a chance in the
first overtime, and we gave it away.we just kept playing, kept playing, and it worked out for us, so it was fantastic."
