As I was driving through the city, you can see that the snow storm has receed,Â thanks to the rain. It will be distance memory in the past as the days go by. I have learned one thing about this snow storm, the cities around here are not prepared for a storm of this magnitude and I do not think they will ever be. I live up in the hill about 700 to 800 feet above sea level and the city here plowed the roads, but as i went into the city there were no streets plowed. That would make you wonder if any of the cities were capable of taking care itself from the display I seen, I would say not. Now that the beautyof snow is gone, there is a lot of clean up to be done. This had damage the street and trees everywhere. I have seen big tree taken down because of the snow that was on it and branches that were 6 inches or more in diameter broken off. ThereÂ was one branch that if was not being supported by other parts of the tree it would have taken out three fiber lined for the street and would takeÂ hours toÂ fix. There was at one time 310, 000 people without electricity for more then 6 days. This is good example of always being prepared for anything that happens.
