Parking ban not lifted in all areas
CLEVELAND — The City of Cleveland shifted its focus from clearing the main roads to the streets in the residential neighborhoods.
Now that the first major snowstorm to hit northeast Ohio this winter is pretty much gone, it’s time to clean up the mess Mother Nature left behind.
With the bad snow blizzard Cleveland endured Wednesday, the city of Cleveland has now been working hard to get the side streets clear. And the snow slacked up Thursday for much needed relief. (read more here)
On Thursday, snows plows could be seen driving around clearing secondary and residential roads. The storm dumped more than five inches on northeast Ohio, so many people were digging out their driveways and sidewalks using shovels and snow blowers.
“This is what I do around here, I do two or three houses around here so you get pretty used to it,” said Robert Glenn of Cleveland.
However, like most people, they would prefer to not be outside shoveling snow.
“No, not really. I was actually enjoying sitting inside a nice, warm room of mine but gotta do chores, right?” said Montorian Priah of Cleveland.
Some people say since we didn’t get much snow last year they were just waiting to get hit and were ready for the clean-up.
Starting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Cleveland lifted the parking ban for the streets marked with red and white snow emergency signs.
However, other areas still had parking bans in effect.
