  1. There was another car wreck earlier in front of home hardware by the police station around 4 pm today. Ì think lots of these accidents have to do with the incredibly TALL SNOWBANKS. BEGGING the city workers to please get rid of them before someone is KILLED!!!!!

  2. There was another serious accident a little bit before this one further down second line just past the police station. One lane was covered with sprawling bits of a car… I hope no one was hit at either of these accidents!

  3. The snowbanks are ridiculous on Great Northern and have been since the last big dump of snow and yet they were cutting the banks at the end of Wallace terr today.

  4. Not surprising, I turn in and out of here every day and you can’t see anything pulling out onto second line due to the snowbanks. It’s a “Jesus take the wheel” leap of faith every day.
