Crews in Porter are preparing for temperatures to drop below freezing overnight.

Downtown Porter got about an inch of snow overnight but crews say the streets haven't been an issue here. Wagoner County Emergency management says across the county, crews will be on standby overnight and ready to go out, if there is still snow and ice on county roads.

ODOT provides a lot of help out in this area as well. We noticed a few kiddos were playing at Lions Park this afternoon. The oldest one is 10 years old and says this is really the first memorable snowfall she's ever experienced.

City worker Wes Parish says the last time he shoveled snow was back in 2007 during the ice storm. He's kind of a jack of all trades with the city and says Wednesday's snow gave him a nice change of pace from his normal duties.

"Waterlines, catch people stealing water. Dig graves. Anything. There's only four of us working here," said Parrish.

It's much of the same story in Coweta where the city has two snowplows up there and they'll be ready to go out tonight if need be.
