Parking spaces scant in midst of even more snow

Snow removal

Massive piles of snow are getting in the way of a precious commodity–parking spaces.

And with more snow on the way, some worry that the situation will get worse.

“You know, everybody is looking for places to park,” said New Haven resident Quincy Davis. “The streets are bad, and we are going to get hit with it.”

With more snow on the way, some worry a bad situation will get worse.

“I just hope that they clear it up real soon,” Davis said.

Plow trucks are working feverishly to keep up with snow that seems to be falling by the shovel full.

“It’s just hard to keep the snow in one spot, so we are just trying to put it at the ends of each row,” said George Jerolman. “Then eventually we will have to move it if this keeps up.”

Moving out of the way did work, but now some are running out of places to put it.

“The whole problem with all this snow is that it’s all frozen, so there is really nowhere to push it. When its frozen you cant push the piles back,” said Gerold O’Connor.

In New Haven, construction crews use heavy equipment to haul it away from streets that just can’t take another flake.

The recent storm has brought double trouble–not just the overwhelming snow but the icy roads it leaves behind.

In order to salt, first workers need to plow. Narrow streets and cars make it hard for plows to get through, leaving some streets and the parking situation to stay rough.
