While some of the streets in our area are plowed, some are not. A reader just sent these pictures of Newton Street NW between 14th and 16th, which appears to have been virtually untouched. Cars have dug their own tracks and that's about it and lots are getting stuck. Here's more of what the reader has to say.
I've seen dozens of cars get stuck in the snow over the past several days. They are spinning out their tires and creating clouds of smoke. I'm really worried that a car might catch fire or someone will get hurt as they slid between parked cars, trying to gain traction.
Here are photos of an at least 8 car jam I just took.
Big kudos to the people who have helped these drivers out by pushing or shoveling, but it's just a street that isn't ready yet for traffic for most cars. Many cars have ended up backing upto get out of the pile up, which is also pretty dangerous since 14th
St is a busy thoroughfare.
Thanks if you can get the word out.Many of our small residential streets are the same way -- so if you have to drive, try to stick to bigger streets, which is what the plows focus on first.
