The Bronx digs out after another January snowstorm

Snow forced the closing of schools in the Bronx and across the city on Wednesday for the first time since 2001.

Unlike students, those forced to dig out from the latest storm didn't get a day off. Some Bronx residents spent the morning digging out their cars, while others were still waiting for their streets to be plowed.

The sanitation department was busy reloading trucks with salt on Wednesday. The department, which is operating 215 plows, 77 salt spreaders and 14 front-end loaders, hopes to have the streets completely cleared by Friday.
