County Holding Bethesda 'Snow Summit'


Published:

Days after Hurricane Sandy swept through the region, the Montgomery County government is turning its attention to what forecasters predict will be a more snowy than usual winter. On Thursday morning, County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) will speak at the county's "snow summit", where officials from agencies with snow removal responsibilities will discuss their readiness for winter storms and some new tactics. The summit is taking place at the county's Department of Transportation Bethesda Depot, home to a fleet of snow plows and trucks responsible for maintaining some of the county's nearly 5,000 lane miles of roads. After getting little significant snow last winter, forecasting company AccuWeather is predicting above average snowfall in 2012-2013 for Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern cities including Washington D.C. The biggest storms are expected to hit in January and February. The D.C. region gets an average of 14.6 inches of snowfall each winter season. Flickr photo by Craig Thoburn
