Road salt supplies sufficient for now By JULIE E. GREENE / Staff Writer MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The salt supply for Tri-State area highways and roads is in good shape for now, including in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle, where state officials recently issued a conservation notice. The notice was issued last week in response to an accident last month at the state's major salt supplier's Louisiana mine, said Carol Melling, spokeswoman for the West Virginia Department of Transportation's Division of Highways.

Residents brace for possible snow bomb By DAN KULIN dank@herald-mail.com Groceries, salt and shovels were moving fast out of Hagerstown area stores Saturday as residents readied for a major snowstorm that was predicted to hit the East Coast from Virginia to New England today. "Busy" was the word from area grocery stores, as managers and other staff were put into cash register duty to deal with the swelled ranks of shoppers. "We're probably twice as busy as normal," said Eric Hahn, grocery manager at Weis Markets on the corner of Eastern Boulevard and Dual Highway in Hagerstown.

Thumbs up to local, county and state road crews across the Tri-State area who worked during this week's ice storm and last week's snowstorm to keep our roads open. When storms hit, these folks work long hours in an effort to make travel not only possible, but as safe as possible under terrible conditions.       Thumbs down to those at the state level who did not provide the type of information to the news media that would have enabled people stuck on South Mountain and elsewhere in last week's snowstorm to be kept apprised of efforts to get traffic moving again.

julieg@herald-mail.com The Tri-State area received up to 6.5 inches of snow and ice in some areas by Friday evening and could see the total reach 8 inches by this morning, thanks to the tail end of a second snowstorm, a more powerful Nor'easter, according to the National Weather Service. The snowfall should end by 9 or 10 this morning, meteorologist Chris Strong said. A weak coastal storm produced Friday morning's snow, which caused several local school systems to close schools for the day. Slight variations in temperature across the Tri-State area caused snow and ice accumulation totals to be uneven as temperatures slightly above freezing, which is 32 degrees, melted some snow, Strong said.

marlob@herald-mail.com As if the normal wintertime drop-off in the number of blood donors wasn't enough, the weekend snowstorm forced the cancellation of American Red Cross bloodmobiles, further compromising already short supplies of blood. "We lost more than 800 units of blood throughout the Johnstown region because of the snowstorm," said Teresa Elwood, blood service chairman for the Washington County chapter of the Red Cross. The local chapter and much of the Tri-State area are part of the region headquartered in Johnstown, Pa., Elwood said Tuesday as she left a regularly scheduled bloodmobile at the Roxbury Correctional Institution south of Hagerstown.

Saturday's snowstorm was an unplanned but perfectly timed test of Mount Aetna Adventist Elementary School's new roof. The school already had scheduled to celebrate its new peaked roof on Sunday, after six decades with a flat roof. The surprise storm, demonstrating the new roof's protection, made the milestone more meaningful. “When we had the snow and the horrible weather yesterday,” Principal Kandace Zollman said Sunday afternoon, a grin spreading across her face, “not a drop of water came out in the school.” The school, on Crystal Falls Drive south of Smithsburg, is now covered with a metal roof.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Chambersburg residents and property owners who fail to clear their sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowstorm will face stiffer penalties this winter. The Chambersburg Borough Council adopted a new snow and ice removal policy last week. The previous policy was to warn and then ticket property owners based on complaints received or observations by municipal employees, Assistant Borough Manager David Finch said. "The council regarded the complaint and observation system as inadequate," Finch said.

The problem: Wolfsville Road resident Sam Bricker wrote in Nov. 13 about the condition of Wolfsville Road in Washington County. “Not only is there still storm debris in the traveled portion of the highway, but last week the lines were repainted and they painted right over the debris,” Bricker wrote. “No attempt was made to remove it before or during the painting operation. “In addition, Wolfsville Road was in horrible condition after the snowstorm,” he said.
