Everett streets weren’t cleared of snow quickly enough

Everett’s response to this week’s snowstorm was pitiful at best.

We had some snow Sunday night and when I drove in to work Monday morning I expected there to be snow on the ground, though was surprised as it looked like nothing had been plowed.

Then a few hours later when I drove home, it still looked like nothing had been done. Then when I drove to work this morning no change still. I then drove to Marysville and all the arterials were clear. But in Everett, Broadway, Rucker, Everett Avenue, Pacific, all were still snow covered. And in all my travels these last two days, I didn’t see one snow plow. I’ve lived in multiple cities all across this country and somehow they manage to clear the roads.

Come, on guys, you can do better than this.
