Snow Could Disable Neighborhood Roads

Even if you are able to get your car out of your driveway, there may be many streets throughout the region that won't be passable for days.

Mylissa Kennedy, a spokesperson with Arlington, Virginia's snow-clearing administration, says it will get to the neighborhoods after the main roads get plowed.

"And we should also note," she says, "That it is expected to be a windy storm, so there may be many passes needed on the primary roads before we consider them clear and then move on to secondary and neighborhood streets."

Lon Anderson with AAA Mid-Atlantic says local governments know snow plows have their limits.

"At some point you run out of places to put all of that snow and I'm sure those are the kinds of things they're going to be looking at," he says. "Where do you put all of that snow?"

Arlington County is asking car owners who normally park on the street to move their vehicles onto the curb so the plows have more room.
