Weather forces delays at GCD and Nespelem schools


Old Man Winter interrupted Monday’s start of school, forcing a two-hour delay because of snow at both Grand Coulee Dam and Nespelem schools.

In Coulee Dam, interim bus manager George Davis said roads in general were bad in all directions.

He singled out roads in the Nespelem area, Delrio, Grand Coulee/Delano area, upper Electric City and “just roads everywhere.”

Electric City, Grand Coulee and Coulee Dam city crews were hard at it Monday morning trying to keep streets open. It wasn’t necessarily the depth of the snow, but finding room to move it into.

It was the first “snow delay” of the season, a rare occurrence in the district.
