In the meantime, the city snowplow was rescued and replaced by an enormous frontloader that scooped up the snow in the circle and deposited it on the fringes. There are now some really tall piles of snow around here!
I went out today and tried out the roads. Many of the local streets that should be two lanes in each direction are one or one-and-a-half lanes each way, but I saw plows out working on this, so things should gradually improve.
Overall, a pretty good job of digging out.
