Feb. 1 winter storm brings blizzard conditions to Lawrence

A storm expected to drop at least 8 inches — and perhaps more — snow on Lawrence, accompanied by strong winds, was moving through Lawrence. A blizzard warning was in effect and virtually all local schools were closed.

Lawrence crews begin plowing residential streets

By Jonathan Kealing · February 2, 2011 · Comment on this

By 11:30 Wednesday morning, city of Lawrence crews had begun clearing residential streets, including this cul-de-sac in east Lawrence. Cul-de-sacs prove especially challenging because of the closely spaced driveways and large street area to clear. This driver rotates his plow blade toward and away from the curb in order to avoid creating windrows, which can be difficult for drivers to navigate over. The driver said they do their best to do that around town, but sometimes, it's just not possible.
