Shoveling snow worst part of getting to work after storm

The hardest part about getting to work Wednesday morning for most Kansas City area residents was shoveling the nearly 12 inches of snow that fell the previous day and overnight.

The snow had to be cleared for residents to get out of their garages and driveways. It was worse for people who parked on the street.

They found that the city’s aggressiveness in getting the streets cleared of snow for the morning traffic packed their vehicles in nicely under a wall of snow and ice that was as high as their cars.

Those who were able to dig out put the mess back in the street. Those who didn’t bother will get to their vehicles when the snow and ice melts.

But that may be awhile because temperatures will go below zero the next couple of days and then stay below freezing for a while. The pretty snow will be quite a dirty mess by the time the weather finally does warm up.

And then look out for the lines at the carwash joints. Be careful out there.
