The bit of snow we got yesterday is a wake up call that winter is here and if the prognosticators are right, we're in for quite a bit of snow this year. The city of Spokane Valley has activated its snow line (720-5311). There will be a recorded message, updated once or twice a day, that gives residents information on the city's plowing activities. People can also sign up to receive email updates on plowing by going to the city's web site and clicking on email updates.
