We have all been struggling with a long intense winter. Obviously the tons of snow has to melt and go into the storm drains. I couldn't even locate my storm drain. It's the only one on my street. I will use a metal detector to locate it and then clear it. I suspect there are many buried drains and we need them to work when the snow finally melts. The near forecast shows no sign of melting so I encourage homeowners to check their area and prepare. Our neighborhood group GNC is also petitioning the council for a little help removing snow/ice from critical areas. I hope we can have a cooperative effort and avoid major flooding.
