Medford: How Are You Dealing With the Storm?
Some details on the aftermath of the biggest snowstorm in years.
The snow has stopped, but the work of cleaning up from one of the biggest snowstorms in local history is just getting ramped up.
Between Friday and Saturday, Medford saw upwards of two feet of snow. All across the city, people have begun the process of digging out.
On Saturday, the city made a reverse 911 call with a message from Medford Mayor Michael J. McGlynn, which said that 108 plows, both city and private contractors, have been working to clear city streets.
We heard from a lot of people on Facebook Saturday who were still waiting for their street to be plowed even as the evening approached. Calling the Medford DPW seemed to do the trick for some.
There were only two power outages in Medford reported by National Grid as of 8 a.m. Saturday.
McGlynn reminded residents that while digging out, throwing snow back into city streets "is creating a public safety hazard which is subject to a fine."
Shoveling your sidewalk is not only good for your neighborhood but also required by city ordinance. Local blogger Alicia Hunt posted the top five reasons why people in Medford should shovel their sidewalk.
Also, a decision regarding whether school will take place in Medford Monday will be made by noon today.
If you have pictures or videos from the storm, we would love to see them. Please upload them here, it's very easy.
