Snow and cold debut with some punch

Thursday, January 28, 2016

Due to a mild winter thus far, Public Works Director Larry Coloni admitted to having to shake off some rust when it finally came time to do battle with the season’s first snowstorm. Last week the area got about 4 inches of snow to go along with some frigid, below-normal temperatures. Rust or not, the Public Works staff rose to the occasion once again — and rose early to get the job done.

“Our crew started at 3 a.m. Wednesday morning,” Coloni said referring to the first morning of the snowfall on Jan. 20. “Almost all of the streets were plowed by 9 a.m.”

While Coloni said there was nothing particularly unusual about the storm, it was not without a few hiccups. He said he was surprised at how many residents had pushed snow from their driveways out into the streets after the roads had been cleared.

“At the end of the day Wednesday I was called to remove snow on West Hickory Point Road that was plowed into the street,” Coloni said. “It was over two feet deep and created a traffic hazard.”
