PUEBLO — Pueblo got more snow than usual on Wednesday morning, which was still hanging around on the roads by the afternoon. The snow also built up on the sidewalks, which could be dangerous for people who need to get outside.

Since temperatures are not expected to get above freezing until Thursday, the snow could stick around on the roads and sidewalks. News 5 saw a handful of people braving the cold to clear their sidewalks, and one of those people said it's critical to do on any snow day. "You've got to make it safe for people, because if they slip and fall, hit their head, it could kill them," said Juvie Sandoval, a local maintenance man.

There is still a thin layer of ice on the roads and sidewalks as of Wednesday afternoon, so be careful.

If you do have to leave the house, check before you go. It can show you the road conditions in real time.
