SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A weekend full of snow flurries was bookended by two storms, keeping plow crews busy and eating further into many town's salt and sand supplies, as well as their budgets.
"It is a lot easier if it just came in, dumped a foot of snow and went out," explained South Portland Public Works plow driver Michael Glass. "Then we could just come in, salt, plow and get rid of it. It is these long, drawn out storms that really take a toll on our equipment, on us, on the budget, on supplies as far as salt and sand."
Glass and his co-workers are not complaining about the winter, just commenting on how the persistent precipitation takes a toll on their equipment and their family time.
