Crews work overtime to deal with winter's latest blast
“All of the crews are working diligently. They are tired, very tired,” said Eric Ryder, superintendent of streets for Nashua’s Public Works Division. “This last storm was a long one, but the crews have done a phenomenal job.”
“We sent them home for about eight, nine hours of sleep, then we want them right back out there again,” said Jeff Freitas, a dispatcher with the Manchester’s Department of Public Works. “The same guys who clear the streets are the ones who clear the sidewalks, so that’s what they are going to concentrate on Friday night.”
Freitas said the forecasts he saw called for another two to four inches to fall in the Queen City this afternoon and tonight.
In Nashua, the task later Friday was to get out-of-the-way places ready for the next blast of winter.
Ryder said he expects anywhere from one to four inches of additional snow from today’s anticipated storm.
“We are waiting to see what this second storm brings, and then we will jump on the sidewalks,” Ryder added.
“At this point in February, I feel like it never ends. Honestly, I am pretty done with it,” Kates said of the snow. “I’ve had enough.” The recent storm dumped more than eight inches of snow on the Nashua region.
Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau said the city has about $230,000 left in its snow removal budget of about $1.3 million. However, she said there is a snow removal trust fund of $300,000 that may be utilized if necessary.
