It was an impressive storm. 20.5 inches. 60 mph winds.
The city plows first the snow routes, then the arterials, followed by the major streets, and then, the secondaries, ie, residential streets. And last, the alleys.
This means it will be at least two more days until the plows will reach us, so the block went out and dug out the street along with the sidewalks. By hand with shovels and a couple of snowblowers. A citizens brigade. (The alleys may need to wait until spring.)
