Durango could see more snow Sunday and Monday

Aaron and Leila Heirtzler, 6, top; Matt Aupperle and Noa Heirtzler, 10; and Ryann Aupperle, 12; took advantage Friday’s storm at Buckley Park.
The Colorado Department of Transportation is using its new tow plow, a plow pulled behind a regular snowplow, to clear snow in Durango during Friday’s storm. The tow plow allows a snowplow to clear two lanes on a run, and CDOT asks motorists to stay behind it as there is no way to safely pass it.
