Some Residential Roads in Kettering Are Still Snow Covered
KETTERING -- Driving conditions still are not clear for many back roads in the Miami Valley, with driving becoming particularly tough in the city of Kettering.
The city said Wednesday afternoon they had finished clearing the eight major snow routes through town, but many secondary and neighborhood roads remain unplowed. The snow that is on the ground will freeze overnight into Thursday.
Unplowed Cushing Avenue is leaving trenches of snow.
"As I was pulling in I got stuck in a snow drift," said Pat Greger. She was in one of many cars to get stuck at the intersection of Far Hills Avenue.
"I backed up, tried to go in reverse, and was able to very carefully back into Far Hills and get out of it," she said.
"For the first snow like this that I can remember it's more snow than it can handle," said Mike Boyd, just one block down the street. He says what's stopping the cars is also stalling his snowblower.
"Winter has come in with a roar. I don't think with the temperatures and the snow we've had this year so far, this is the worst I've seen in a long time."
Neighbors on Cushing said their street hadn't seen a snowplow or salt truck since the latest storm hit. Their concern for what is to come on Thursday.
"I know come tomorrow morning it's going to be a lot worse due to the ice," Boyd said.
"I just think it's going to get worse, I mean it's hard now cause it's all ice," said Anita Suttmiller from across the street.
"There's always a concern, this isn't safe driving at all!" she added. "Next year I'm gonna get a snowblower!"
The city of Kettering said on their Facebook page that they will have crews out plowing residential streets overnight, and they will stay on duty until all streets are plowed.
KETTERING -- Snow plows and salt trucks across the Miami Valley have been working to clean up the roads after last night's snowfall, but many communities are still running low on salt.
So several cities created action plans to tackle the snow, while they worked in some communities, others are still digging themselves out.
"Pretty much just shoveling digging myself out."
Jerome Aldana has been digging himself out for the past few hours.
"This is my second time seeing it like this," said Aldana, "Is it frustrating?" asked the reporter, "Yeah, can't get out."
He's talking about this side street in Kettering.
Crews haven't plowed the road at all.
"It's bad so we're not really going out, we're staying home and trying to dig ourself out," said Aldana.
"This is the first time that I've ever seen it to where they haven't 't even made a pass at it," said John Press.
John Press is hard at work trying to clear his driveway and sidewalk.
He's lived on acorn for several years, and has never seen this much snow on his road.
"The back streets I can see but Acorn is a main thoroughfare but they haven't even touched it." said Press.
But it's a different story in Vandalia.
"We're going to try to get to every street today before we go home," said Rob Cron, Street Maintenance for the City of Vandalia.
Crews have been working through the night clearing the main roads, then moved on to the secondary streets, and have actually plowed the residential areas.
"They do need to be cautious when they're out driving, we'll plow the streets as normal but we just won't put salt down until we get more in," said Cron.
The city has 350-tons of salt left and is hoping it'll last through another storm.
But for those tired of old man winter, Press has a little bit of advice.
"All I can say is, if you don't like it move, this is what you get when you live in Ohio," said Press.
Every jurisdiction we spoke to today, including Vandalia and Dayton, have all said they will get to the side and residential streets as soon as they can.
