FOR LAST WEEKE’SND BLIZZARD. DRIVERS IN BOSTON CHIPPED AWAY AT THE ICE COVERING THEIR WINDSHIELDS. AND SOME SAID IT WASN’T EASY. >> IT WILL GIVE YOU A HEART ATTACK! DAVID: THE ICE ALSO COVERED TREE ANBRCHES, HUNG FROM STREET LIGHTS AND ENCAPSULATED CLUMPS OF CHERRIES. EVEN WITH A FRESH DUSTINGF O ROCK SALT STEEP SIDEWALKS WERE TREACHOUERS. CREWS USED THE EDGES OF THEIR SHOVELS TO TRY TO SCRAPE DOWN SIDEWALKS BUT IN SOME PLACES COULDN’T GETHR TOU.GH >> IT KEEPS COMING DOWN. THE SNOW JUST PUSHES OUT. A TLO EASIER. THIS IS MORE MUSCLES YOU HAVE TO USE. DAVID: NEAR BOSTON CITY HALL, WORKERS USED SQUEEGEES TO PUSH ASIDE WHAT STARTED OUT AS A LAYER OF SSHLU. AND THE CITY BROUGHT OUT MACHINES EQUIPPED WITH HUGE SCRUBBING BRUSS.HE BUT THE CREWS HAD A HARD TIME KEEPING UP AND PEDESTRIANS REPORTED SLICK WALKING CONDITIONS. >> WHEN I CAME DOWN A COUPLE OF HOURS AGO, IT WASN’T THAT BAD. IT WAS STILL RAINING. THERE WAS NOTHING SLIPPERY, AND NOW, YOU KNOW, I DON’T KNOW. >> IT L’SIKE IF YOU POUR HOT WATER ON THE GROUND AND YOU WTEN OUTSIDE, IT’S SLIPPERY. DAVID: BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS HAD A SNOW DAY. THERE WASN’T MUCH SNOW TO SPEAK OF FROM THIS STORM AND THIS IS NOT THE KIND OF STUFF THAT IT’S FUN TO PLAY IN.

Boston Public School students had a snow day on Friday, but there wasn’t much snow falling. Instead, sleet and freezing rain were falling, forming a hazardous coating.
