Olympic snow

As snow settles on Olympic Avenue Friday, forecasts predicted another round of snowfall, more cold and wind, for Saturday night and Sunday. “The Arlington road crew is currently operating on a 24-hour schedule in an effort to stay ahead of the record snow fall we are receiving,” said Kristin Banfield, the city’s spokesperson. “Our snow plows and sand trucks continue to focus on primary routes for emergency vehicles — maintaining access to and from the hospital and fire stations. As time and weather permits, additional secondary routes will also be plowed and sanded. We encourage all residents to stay at home. In case of any emergency, call 9-1-1.” - SARAH ARNEY The Arlington Times
