Good Question: Reply all to snow questions

To date we've already had 18.2 inches of snow in Lexington, during an average winter we get about 16 inches.

Good Question: Reply All to Snow Questions.

Its been one snowy winter and we're not the only ones feeling it.

C in Richmond: Twice I've heard that we have snow in 49 of our 50 states, all but Florida. Does Hawaii have snow?

Its true, a map from the National Weather Service.

Every state except Florida has some accumulation on the ground.

In Hawaii seven inches fell atop a mountain called Mauna Kea.

Lynn in Lexington: I would like to know the number of plows and people that we have working on our roads?

Streets and roads crews have been working around the clock lately salting and scraping.

Here in Lexington there are 49 trucks with plows to cover more than 1100 surface miles.

Compare that to Madison with 25 combo trucks and Scott County with 10 trucks.

David in Lexington: Where does all the salt put on the road go and does it hurt the environment?

Already here in Fayette County 8,000 tons of salt has been used to treat the roads, all that salt can be washed off the roads and get deposited in the grass and possibly into waterways.

Director of Streets and Roads, Sam Williams says tests are done regularly on urban streams and consistently he says they show no indication of environmental impact.
