A messy situation - photos


The snowplows were out on Feb. 25 in South St. Paul trying to improve road conditions late last week.

Slushy snow bonded to street surfaces during a large snowstorm Feb. 20 and over a week later it was still hard to maneuver around most city streets in the Twin Cities. Concord Boulevard in South St. Paul was one of the many icy, rutted streets around town. Road crews said sub-zero temperatures were reducing the effectiveness of the salt and chemical compounds on the streets. Up next: pothole season.

Four days after the Twin Cities was blanketed with 11 inches of wet snow, crews were attempting to reduce the huge piles in city lots. Here the lot at the South St. Paul Community Center needed more attention. There was little chance of Mother Nature lending a hand with melting the all the snow, as the forecast called for sub-zero temperatures continuing into early March.
