East Side Snow


If New York City is the “City that doesn’t sleep,” Cleveland is the “City that doesn’t stop” and that’s exactly what happened throughout Northeast Ohio Wednesday.

Snow fell overnight, took a break and then continued for the next five hours straight (at the very least) but schools and businesses still remained open, especially on the east side.

Sunview Elementary School serving South Euclid and Lyndhurst was one of the schools that remained open.  Outside, a long line of vehicles waited to get to the entrance so parents could drop off kids instead of making them walk through what would be knee-high snow to a child.

“Were you hoping for one?” we asked a parent, wondering if she wished her two boys a snow day Wednesday.  “Oh, not really,” said Jamie Brown laughing, “They’ve had a lot of snow days this year, so not really.”

As those parents patiently waited in some traffic, around them, the area buzzed with snow plows following one another for tandem plowing on the major roadways, Bobcats zipped up school sidewalks and neighbors were out with snow blowers and shovels.

The constant snowfall caused some neighbors to shovel their driveway three and four times in only a few hours.  “When it snowed a week ago, it wasn’t this heavy at all …” said a Lyndhurst homeowner, tired of clearing her driveway on her own.
