WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Waterloo area saw several hours of steady, sometimes heavy snow.

It made travel a mess and at times, caused whiteout conditions due to the intensity of it.

Despite the snow still falling, some people like Victor Barber tried to shovel out.

That's to minimize how much he'll have to shovel in the morning.

"I wake up about 5 a.m. and get ready for work and I just don't want to have to come out here and shovel 10" of snow so this is my 2nd time I've been outside already tonight," said Barber.

Barber says he'll get up at 4 a.m. to shovel out the rest.

A snow emergency in effect for Waterloo until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

A tow ban is in place for all of Black Hawk County until Tuesday.
