Sunday morning snow cleanup - News, Weather and Classifieds for Southern New England

Snow cleanup underway in Smithfield

Posted: Updated:
SMITHFIELD, R.I. -

For those who were out on the roadways Sunday morning, it was sloppier than it was dangerous. There were some areas on highways and roads with large puddles of water, but really not that bad. There weren't that many people out there anyway, and for the most part, the plows were able to keep on top of it.

Paul Cavanagh, of Smithfield, was among those getting a jump start on the clean up Sunday morning, and he talked to NBC 10 about cleaning up Mother Nature's aftermath. "Now I'm going to go plow out my business down in Johnston."

The Department of Public Works workers and contracted plow drivers for various cities were out in full force during the overnight hours, and they told NBC 10 that they were happy with the timing of the storm because it started late at night and not many people were out on the roads. This made it that much easier for the crews to through down salt and sand to keep the roads safe and ready for people to use on Sunday morning.

The early start on the cleanup will be even more beneficial for safe travel on the roads later as temperatures are expected to drop causing the slushy mess to freeze over. So if you haven't done so by now, you might want to get out there and really start to clear up the rest of what's out there on your driveway or your front walkway because soon enough, it'll be frozen on there like iron.
