Todd, Tom, Dan and Tom make up the Perrysburg Highway Department. These four men are the only thing keeping 35 miles of town roads clear.

"Just plow," Dan Stang, Perrsyburg Highway Superintendent said is how his team spends their days. "Just keep the truck on the highway and keep moving."

Stang says Sunday you could see green grass on his front lawn. Monday, there's more than a foot of snow.

"There was actually nothing here," Eric Fuchs, Perrysburg resident said. "You could see green grass on my lawn yesterday. I woke up to all of this."

But even with only four men, Fuchs and his fellow neighbors think the highway department does a great job clearing the roads.

"Last night, when it was hitting the hardest there was a plow like every couple minutes. We saw them so they were really on top of it," Robin Zemke said.

And although residents we spoke with said it has been a mild winter they know the snow isn't stopping anytime soon.

"They might not be getting it (snow) anywhere else but here it's going to hit us."
