I just moved here. Just in tie for the great blizzard of 2013 and i have to say i am totally impressed with the freshly plowed roads. They were to travel on at 4pm right after an emergency situation and driving ban. Keep up the great job!

Welcome to Attleboro Tom. Thanks for coming to Patch!

Nope. The roads were pathetic. No sand/salt? What were you doing for the 24 hour ban? It was like the roads were plowed at 7am and then not touched again.

The 5th worst storm in New England history. the cleanup is pretty impressive to me.

I agree with Mike.I've endured many Attleboro snow storms and this was not the worst Attleboro did not get as much snow as other local city's. 16"-18" is not that bad The road were and not being plowed as well as they should be..All side roads have not been plowed at all as of Sunday morning. So is Dumas done plowing or on vacation?

10:22 AM on SUNDAY and not a plow in sight on my street. The City should be embarrassed that all the streets are not cleared. This is 24hrs after the storm was over...Are you kidding me!!

I would think it would be more effective to post your st or area where you need plowing. Or perhaps a call to city hall or your local police instead of finding a place on the internet to post. That might be a lot more effective. If your unable to shovel perhaps make a post on here. Hopefully there are good samaritans that might be of assistance. The second the driving ban was off lifted i got out and helped my neighbors clear their cars. It was a nice way to meet them as well. I also helped somebody with a flat tire in need of help. During an emergency people should help each other and realize that this is just a temporary setback. Think of the unfortunate people in parts of the state still don't have electricity and heat. If not being first on the list to have your street plowed is your emergency you have more then a snow issue.
