More Snow Could Be on the Way

The National Weather Service says another snowstorm on Tuesday could bring one to three inches of snow.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for southeast Pennsylvania as a quick moving storm system could drop another few inches of snow on Tuesday.

The forecast for Tuesday calls for an 80 percent chance of snow with a total accumulation of one to three inches.

The forecast says that any snow would primarily fall before 1 p.m.

There will also be a slight wind of around 9 miles per hour.

The national weather service says that some parts of Philadelphia, the airport, got as much as eight inches of snow on Sunday, while other parts received an inch.

That would be nice if the City salts Green Lane before and during the next storm. I know there is going to be an article coming out about what a good job the City did during the storms. If the City does a half way job again on salting Green lane that should be a good indicator on how the rest of the streets in the Roxborough and Manayunk area were salted.

I'm sure that crying about it on here is really gonna help get salt on the roads. Call 311 dummy

I'm with swordfish. Life is too short. Winter in the northeast brings snow. Enjoy the day. Take time to make a snowman. Don't wait until it's too late to enjoy each day as it comes. Winter snow, spring rain, summer heat, fall chilly-but sword, we do need a sled or two.

Sanlazarro that is all very true in what ypu posted and it is good sage advice. No problem with what you said because what you said is sage advice. However one still has to wonder where are taxes go if the City will not throw a couple of bags of salt on streets in our area like Green Lane and all the streets in our area for that matter.

Are you really that naive? Surely you know that your tax dollars are spent in countless ways by the city, and not just used to buy a 'couple of bags of salt' for green ln, which by the way isn't even enough material to treat 20 yards of surface. Your taxes fund plenty; like schools, PPD, fire, parks, streets, public assistance programs and many local government agencies. Get over yourself. The city has bigger fish to fry. It is irresponsible for them to bother wasting their limited resources on some podunk streets in roxborough... The city doesn't plow or salt the street that i live on, so you know what? My neighbors and I have hired a private plow service to dig us out when the flakes fall. It's not cheap, but it's certainly a heck of a lot more effective than crying about why the city isn't plowing my street. I'm sure that the city would have no objections to you, your neighbors and your civic associations taking a similar approach to green ln. Do something! Don't just sit there all helpless like a dummy

Understand all points presented. 365 days in a year. Plenty of time to be angry about taxes. Guilty too. Death and taxes. Not escaping either. I put that anger behind my snow shovel. Makes it easier if you work up a good fit. But just for a few precious days a year, grab a sled and hit a hill. Waxing up my flexible flyer now and for a few brief moments I'm joining sword - see you at the bottom sword

I see this is an old post, but for Christs sake it should NOT be the responsibility if tax-paying residents to plow their own streets. Particularly when you're paying more in taxes than plenty of others whose streets are plowed. I have not even seen a plow in Manayunk since this last snowfall. I agree that it's more constructive to call 311 than to post a comment, and I have, but when I see the idiotic suggestion that we should not expect our roadways to be cleared by our city I feel compelled to reply.
Franky G January 04, 2014 at 07:25 PM
Within minutes of the last flakes falling from our latest storm, my street was plowed (privately) down to asphalt and salted. But I guess it makes much more sense to just whine about taxes.
