“Everything's rolling. But even our largest are having some problems moving through this,” he said.
Sunday night plow crews faced a more-than-usual number of vehicles bucking the parking ban — because trucks’ progress was slowed, Goodkind continued: “The wreckers couldn’t move.”
Snow banks remaining from the last large storm added to the apparent magnitude of accumulation. Plowing will raise and widen those roadside mounds, and slow the progress of sidewalk clearing, he added.
Salt will not be applied until the storm slows, and plows are able to scrape more snow from road surfaces, Goodkind said.
