    185th Air Refueling Wing, Iowa Air National Guard

    Civil engineers assigned to the 185th Air Refueling Wing wrestled with another round of snow this week at the Sioux City, Iowa Air National Guard unit.

    This week’s snow was piled on top of a series of snow events this winter in Western Iowa that required snow removal crews to work a lot of additional hours to ensure air operations at the Air Refueling Wing could continue without interruption.

    A number of Civil Engineering employees who are also traditional guard members are deployed this winter which has increased the work load on employees who are still in Iowa.

    Members of the snow crew are usually up and at it by 2 A.M. in order to begin clearing parking lots and sidewalks on the base. According to Mark Benson who is a snow crew member, the main priority is clearing the flight line that is home to the unit’s KC-135 mid-air refueling aircraft.

    Even though the end of the snow season is near Benson says it is not quite over yet. He adds that with the busy season, keeping the equipment up and running has presented some challenges but they are getting the job done.
