33.2" of snowfall, well above the average of 25.4". With well over 6 inches of snow falling yesterday alone, the City of Spokane declared a Stage 2 Snow Emergency sending plows into a 24 hours a day work mode in order to complete a full-City plow.
They cleared the hills and then moved to other neighborhood roads. Even plowing back in your once cleared driveway. But that just comes with the territory. How many of us were just hoping warmer temperatures and rain would wash the snow away so you didn't even have to get the shovel or snow blower out? Unless of course you have that great neighbor that always shovels you out!
The City has 55 plows, sanders, deicers, and graders, including some private contractors out working to improve driving conditions. Did you know you can also sign up for a text service?
