( my Jan 1, 2014 comment in this ToledoTalk.com thread about roads not being maintained well during a )
When I walked the dog this afternoon, I noticed that Douglas Rd was mostly clear and slushy wet, so that stretch of road received heavy attention. Even Bowen Rd through the neighborhood was mostly clear and wet. But hey, the 1%'ers get special treatment.
Temps for the past 24 hours have remained in the teens. The snow continues to fall. The snow is extremely fine-grain, lightweight, and powdery. I don't know if those dynamics work against the snow removers any more than a heavy, wet snow with temps around 30 degrees.
It's probably going to be tough for the snow removal crews over the next couple days.
The forecast calls for temps to remain in the teens tonight and Thursday with at least 3 to 5 more inches of new snow possible by Thursday evening. And the wind speed is expected to increase tonight and Thursday. In open areas, that powdery snow will move around easily. Friday morning's temps will start out below zero and will warm barely above 10 degrees.
