The Texas Tech University campus saw its first significant snowfall of the season Friday. Charles Leatherwood, managing director for Grounds Maintenance, said his department is responsible for removing ice and snow during winter weather. Using shovels, brooms, leaf blowers and lawn mowers turned snow plows, grounds crews focused their efforts on the streets and sidewalks on both the campuses of Texas Tech University and the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center.
"We have enough equipment that we can mobilize and scatter out pretty well," Leatherwood said. "I'm really pleased. Our guys worked hard."
