An April storm has left Weyburn covered in snow. 

This morning Weyburn Police said that travel is not recommended throughout the city, and the City of Weyburn still recommends that people avoid driving while they clear the streets.

Larry Heggs, Executive Director with the Weyburn Chamber of Commerce said although the storm has been hard on the community and local business, the rewards are yet to come.

“Moisture is excellent, it supports our agriculture, and agriculture of course supports our local economy.” said Heggs. “So, I think that it’s short-term pain for long-term gain.”

After last year’s drought, many areas were in desperate need of moisture.

“Some areas west of here, I was talking to some people yesterday who said they received more moisture in the last two days than they had all year.”

He added that businesses will prosper because of the added moisture.
