Spring Ice Storm Hits Galva Area GALVA — Banks of ice two feet high lined a stretch of road near Galva in the wake of a spring storm which struck the area Monday night. State highway crews arrived in the area about 9 p.m. and pushed the hail from the highway. Banks of ice, looking like marbles fused together with slush and mud, lined the road for about a mile. Another oddity of the storm was an ice block in a small creek south of th# R o b e r t VanAutreve farm south of Galva. VanAutreve used a tractor loader to clear the highway of ice which had accumulated, and in so doing, he blocked a culvert causing the creek to spill onto the highway. Mrs. VanAutreve said it is the first time in her memory a water problem ever existed in that area. Galvans resumed a now- familiar task of pumping out basements as a result of the storm which continued on into t h e early morning hours Tuesday. City crews are pumping out sanitary sewers to relieve them of the excess storm water. A Civil Defense unit stood by Monday night during the height of the storm. Galva MRS.
