Snow removal made easier since it didn't rain - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Snow removal made easier since it didn't rain

Emergency planners said this weekend's snow removal was made easier since the storm didn't start with rain.

Roanoke City Transportation Director Mark Jamison said the city decided not to pretreat the roads on Saturday night, thinking that the storm might start with rain, which would wash the chemical away.

Jamison called it a "team effort" as city workers from several different departments worked together to clear the roads.

He said it was the city's 12th winter weather event this season, saying accumulation totals were about normal for the entire winter.
