POLL: Rate Snow Shoveling and Plowing Efforts Near You
The storm is over, but the cleanup continues.
Ward 6 got an estimated 5 inches of snow yesterday, and many roads and sidewalks are still an icy mess. Hundreds of Capitol Hill, Hill East, Navy Yard and Near Northeast residents called 311 to request that snowplows clear their block, according to the District’s Snow Map.
How well-cleared are the streets and sidewalks near you? Here’s what some locals said:
Advice: if walking to work today, go the corporate route. Major businesses/bldgs have been better than homeowners at shoveling.
