Area leaders pledge to clear roads by today…

The snow removal process continues across the DMV. A few area leaders made pledges to get roads plowed by today. In Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett vowed to have every street plowed at least once by 7 am. I checked in with Patrick Lacefield spokesperson for Montgomery County and asked him, did they make thier goal? If your street did not get serviced go to and let the county know. In Virginia, VDOT leaders made a promise to have roads passable by 7am for the most part that was achieved. In Prince George’s County, County Executive Rushern Baker says every road will be passable by 9 tonight.

DC kids return to school but not without some dangerous challenges & The city’s “Snow Emergency” ends tonight…

We received several reports of students having to walk in the street because the side walks were still covered with snow, snarling traffic and worrying parents. In Charles, St. Mary’s and Calvert counties classes began two hours late. DC’s “Snow Emergency” plan ends tonight at 6:30 pm.
