The warmer temperatures may slowly be melting away winter. Residents and city crews are busy cleaning up winters weathered mess.

Tuesday, temperatures reached 40 degrees in the Capitol City.

Ray Steinman of Lincoln got out and scooped his roof.

"It's a gorgeous day for doing this," he said.

Meanwhile, city street crews are busy repairing weathered streets. Workers say they're pretty busted up.

Steve Stewart of Public Works said, "We're getting a little chance to catch up on some of em, that had been underneath the snow and ice."

While there's a lot of snow melting, it's not seeping into the ground. It's still frozen. Climatologists tell us it's likely this moisture will help fill local ponds, lakes and streams.
