“The crew is out in Southtown right now because it’s snowing 3 inches an hour in some areas. That’s why we all need to be off the road. Emergency crews are going where they need to be.” We’re clearing the roads to keep doing that, and to make sure no more people are stranded when the storm rolls in.”
