Ray Kimball spent nearly three hours digging out his car and driveway this morning.

"I'm not gonna do it all because we're supposed to have more tonight," Kimball said

Kimball has been a Lansing resident for more than 50 years. Living along Edgewood, he see's first hand what happens when drivers don't take it slow in the snow.

"I look right out there on that corner and see them smashing together all the time," Kimball said.

And the roads are still very slushy. Lansing operations and maintenance plowed the main streets last night and started plowing residential areas Monday.

"I saw six plow trucks following each other coming right by," Dylan Myers, a Lansing resident said.

Myers lives along Jolly Rd. and he says he got up early to give his car a good cleaning before heading out.

"Clean off your cars really well because there's been a lot of accidents around here from people not cleaning off their cars and people not being able to see when their merging," Myers said.

That certainly may be good advice and the city is also asking residents to do a few things to help the clean up process run smoothly.

These include: keeping vehicles off the street, shoveling our sidewalks and making sure we do not shovel snow back into the streets.

Lansing operations and maintenance says the snow is heavy and wet and that makes it a little harder to remove.
