This past Wednesday, a week and a half before the official start of winter, Iowa and much of the Midwest experienced its worst snowstorm in years. Vinton received about 10 inches of snow. The street department and water department employees were out at 2 AM this morning clearing the windrows from the downtown area. Vinton-Shellsburg Schools cancelled classes for three days. Hopefully, this will be the worst storm this winter.
