Facebook fans weigh in on storm
Feb 22, 2013 (The Telegraph - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
The Telegraph's Facebook readers said Thursday that roads in their areas looked "horrible" and, as soon as crews plowed, they immediately were covered with snow again.
"Snow plow just went through, but you can barely tell," Shelley Atterberry of Godfrey said.
"Roads What roads " Brandt Gvillo of Fosterburg commented.
"The roads are horrible and slick," Crystal Swiecicki of Wood River said.
"Plows are out and clearing, but within minutes, it's covered again," Sara Wilkison of Rosewood Heights said.
Michael Batchelor said that Norton Street in Alton basically was on lockdown once the storm hit.
"Brick hills up and down to get out, and none of them are safe enough to walk, let alone drive," Batchelor said.
"The joys of living in Christian Hill are parking your car at the library and hoofing it home," Janet Keffer of Alton said.
David C. Whipple said he was on the Great River Road at Ouatoga Bluff, and visibility was bad.
"The river has disappeared, can't see it," Whipple said. "People driving on the road are really going slow."
"I can only wish to be in Florida," Beverly Livingston Moore of South Roxana said.
Jerry Schallenburg said, "Florida looks and feels great."
Other Telegraph Facebook fans outside of the region couldn't help but comment about the roads where they lived, as well.
"We are in Rockport, Texas, watching the snowstorm (on TV), and our roads are A-OK," Carollynn Straub said.
"I'm in Southern California, (and the roads) are great," Anthony Ollenbittle said.
At least one person commented on what many probably wanted do after dealing with the wintry day.
"I need a beer," David Boger said.
