Toledoans dig out after more snow

Posted: Updated:

It's a familiar sight these days; snow covered streets and neighbors digging out after yet another round of significant snow.

"I hate it, I can't wait until this is over with," Tony Olds, who lives in Toledo said.

Olds worked outside all day Wednesday clearing his driveway and lending a helping hand to his neighbors and parents.

"Ever since 9am all I've been doing is shoveling snow, blowing snow and up to my waist in snow," he said.

It's a common sight in this Toledo neighborhood.

Johnnie Atwell didn't have class, so instead he went out in the cold to help his neighbor.

"I'm trying to make it so she'll be able to go to the store if she needs to go," Atwell told 13abc.

Luckily, road conditions are improving, but there's still plenty to be done.

In fact, city crews are still working around the clock to pick up what Mother Nature left behind.

The city of Toledo has also declared a snow parking emergency.  That means cars cannot be parked on TARTA bus or snow routes.  Cars also have to be moved from residential streets to give plows enough room to clean up.

"The more cars that are off the street the better it's going to be plowed and the better it will be for everyone," Olds said.

The city plans to enforce the parking ban.  Cars parked on side streets will be towed at no expense to a nearby location.

But if you park on those other routes, you could get a ticket.

The parking ban goes into effect at 7 a.m. Thursday.
