I understand this is a larger than normal storm BUT, not like we haven’t seen this white stuff before . this is now Sun. morn. and still no sign of any kind of snow removal on Hannah Niles way and many other side streets in our town .How did this happen and WHO is too be held accountable ??? Is the Mayor’s street plowed ? just wondering ?

Reservoir Av & Reservoir Circle still not even touched. Foue eLderly families live in the area so how could ambulance get thru if needed. Cannot get to fire hydrant to help FD. How could FD even get here or police? This is not first storm Braintree has ever experienced. Why weren't we better prepared? Or done a better job?

Ledgewood Rd. - down the end is still not plowed.3 calls to the highway Dept No Luck - 1 call to City hall No Luck.. My U.S.Mail man wont trudge through the mess on the street in front of my house .He always drives up to my mail box but not now.I wonder if Tom Minino in Boston can help with the impossible task that I have in the town that I pay taxes to or do they expect a man that is 74 & uses oxygen to go out & shovel ? Great service for a retired town employee.

Thanks for everyone adding their streets. The volume of snow caused break-downs for some plows, but the town is attacking side streets now after the main roads have been cleared. I'll have another updated story later today on streets, schools, etc.

Old Washington street is horrible. This is a two way street, but now its one way. We cant get out of driveway the street is so narrow to back up. There is at least 3 or feet on street in front of our homes that has not been plowed.

I wont bother you anymore . My problem has been resolved by my neighbor with his snow blower & his neighbor with a plow blade on his pickup.Its a funny thing I don't even pay them my taxes.Its great to know that there are people that still look out for one another. I feel bad for those plows that are broken down under the Union St. bridge waiting for there mechanics to come & get them going again. Must be boring sitting there most of the night drinking coffee . See you all next storm.!!!

Marjorie is also a two way that has been turned into a one way. I hope that some of these side roads are re-visited today, it's treacherous out there...

Hi Steve, One common problem people encounter with commenting is that if they are not signed into the site when they make a comment, the site will prompt log-in and the comment will be lost. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Pam February 10, 2013 at 11:29 PM
Nope still not plowed. ZLast time was over 24 hours ago, and even then it was not a good job. i feel bad for them, but they get paid to plow.
Lisa February 10, 2013 at 11:33 PM
Edgemont rd is still a mess,just saw someone get stuck on it a few hours ago, i only made it because i have 4 wheel drive
Taxpayer February 11, 2013 at 12:37 AM
At 7:15 pm we were told St. Claire St was plowed an hour before. Funny that is not what my eyes tell me. After phone call, a plow ( small) came around the circle with his blade up!!! At 10:30am I was told a plow and front loader were on their way!! Still waiting!!!
nick February 11, 2013 at 01:10 AM

Jane February 11, 2013 at 02:11 AM

STeve Tahmosh February 11, 2013 at 01:10 PM
