Complaining: What gets plowed and what doesn't

Priorities: #1 black, #2 purple, #3 red, #4 yellow
By Diane Hettrick

Many questions today on social media about what roads were and were not plowed in Shoreline.
Here's the map with the City's planned response and the page with the storm response information.

A reader commented that he drove from Everett to Shoreline today. "Everywhere I drove between Everett and Shoreline was compact snow and ice. Even the freeway. Shoreline surface streets however were clear in most spots, especially intersections."

If you live on a neighborhood street, you get to wait until the snow melts or risk getting stuck in a snowdrift half a block from your house.

I am seriously missing CleanScapes. They were the garbage utility for Shoreline before they merged with Recology. During the last major snow event, years ago, CleanScapes put snow plows on the front of their collection trucks and plowed the streets as they went about their routes.

The street was clear in my small neighborhood the day after the snowstorm.

I called Recology / Cleanscapes today and they didn't even know what I was talking about.

It's hard to explain that you can't get to a meeting (or to work) when the only street still snowed in is the one in front of your house!
