During a winter storm, why does it seem like I only see a plow or sander every few hours?

Our personnel are well-trained and prepared to work "around the clock" until clean-up is complete and roads have returned to safe conditions for travel. Residents should not be alarmed if they do not see their road plowed during the early part of a snow storm. The Highway Department follows an assigned route plan whereby main roads are plowed first. Please be patient. All town roads will eventually be plowed.
