Danny Bergloff of Garden Gate Landscaping said he has been clearing snow off of the business fronts on the west side of the square for 16 years but never in May. The Newton Community School District confirmed that a “couple” of school buses wound up in ditches. Kris Simbro of the NCSD Department of Transportation said “No kids were hurt, but just a little late.” Simbro also confirmed that buses will only be on hard surfaces this afternoon. Four inches of snow fell in Newton, resulting in the largest May snowfall in nearly a century.
