Cleanup began early today for Pueblo’s Park and Recreation Department. The strong, icy winds that tore across the city all day Wednesday also ripped branches from trees and toppled trees in city parks, medians, and Mountain View Cemetery, and even brought down the marquee sign at the Pueblo Ice Arena.

Crews were out today cleaning up the mess and clearing out smaller branches within parks, recreational areas, and golf courses.. Parks employee John Armijo was one of those out today, measuring trees as part of the cleanup effort.

Assistant Director of the Parks Department Michael Sexton says the winds brought down trees that in some cases topped forty to fifty feet and may have been as much as 70 years old.

This project will not be a short one. Sexton estimates it will take weeks to clear and take care of the damage done by the storm. If more strong winds crop up again, as forecast by some weather experts, the problem could become even worse.
