Manchester police say no major snow-related problems

Manchester Police say no accidents requiring their attention had been reported as of noon on Sunday after the storm that brought 14 inches of snow to parts of the city.

Police Capt. Jon Hopkins said "people seem to have hunkered down" during the wintry weather that swept through New England beginning Saturday afternoon and continuing until after dawn on Sunday.

Residents apparently obeyed the city's parking rules. Police said that no cars had to be towed from city streets during the overnight hours from Saturday into Sunday.

City public works crews have been working to clear and widen streets.

"Things are going well," said Public Works Director Kevin Sheppard. "The snow didn't end until early this morning, and most of the streets have been hit and we have trucks cleaning up.

Crews will spend much of Sunday afternoon widening streets by plowing drifts back toward curbside and then spreading salt on the surface in an effort to clear the roads of snow and ice.

Sheppard said salt works best when the temperature reaches 20 degrees. By noon Sunday, the temperature in the city had climbed to 22 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Work to clear sidewalks will begin once the plowing work has been completed. No decision has been made yet on whether.
