CDA Snow Removal Guide

With another storm on the way tonight, Coeur d'Alene residents may want to take a look at the City's 'Snow Guide' for a refresher on how snow removal works in the City.

The guide includes the system of prioritized roadways to be plowed/deiced first, how much snow must fall before snow removal efforts kick into gear, a discussion of 'problem areas,' and 'do's and don'ts.' For example, one 'do' is "Take it easy shoveling - it is hard work and has been linked to heart attacks." Good advice. That's why I fake a hernia every winter in order to get the neighbor to shovel my driveway.
