Mind-numbing cold helps make snowstorm a pain

As of early Friday afternoon, Sheppard said the city's roads were in "pretty good shape" with main roads open and side streets looking good.
The city had about 45 pieces of equipment out during the storm, plowing and salting the city's 400 miles of streets. Because of the storm's duration, Sheppard said staffing was a concern, especially because another six hours was needed for the final cleanup after the snow ended.
Between 150 and 155 vehicles were towed during the snowstorm, about the norm, according to police Lt. Maureen Tessier.
He said he won't know what the exact cost of the storm cleanup is for several days.
