It had snowed several times in January for totals of about 6 inches, which when followed
by a frigid, sub-freezing cold spell that rendered "winter's delight" into an
icy and hard packed treacherous base for this snow storm. Media panic ensued.
Snow began falling at about 8 p.m.on Tuesday evening, January 27, 2004, and by 4 a.m. the
next morning, the area was blanketed with about a foot of snow. As most people were home
and with school/work delays and cancellations -- road crews were able to effectively clean
the streets during the night. It should be noted that despite the storm, our DPW did
pick up recycling Wednesday morning.
On Thursday night, the DPW removed the curb snow along The Boulevard.
Before the storm began, the ground was already covered with hard packed snow and ice.
Despite the snow, our DPW did pick up recycling that morning.
