JACKSON, Wyo. — The combination of rising temperatures and steady precipitation of wintry mix has created a mess all over town.

While higher elevations in the valley have been receiving snow, the town is experiencing consistent rain and flooding streets. Buckrail staff photographer Nick Sulzer caught several Town of Jackson public workers helping mitigate a flooded and frozen storm drain on High School road by the Smith’s bus stop.

The drains are typically covered in snow or ice most of the winter, and when it rains there is often nowhere for the water to run off.
