Plowing just isn't enough
Cathedral Heights: Today emerged one of the problems with the cleanup: Stuck cars.
At one of the cities biggest intersections, Wisconsin Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue NW, near the National Cathedral, some snow of varying depths still covered most of the street. And on unplowed nearby side streets, cars that got stuck were left in the middle of the road. One white Jeep stuck in the middle of the road had been in an accident, and looked like it would need a tow.
A block down, two cars were parked in the middle of Bellevue Terrace. One angry resident, watching a black GMC Yukon Denali drive down the street and get stuck, said, "It should be illegal for people to be on the road. Emergency vehicles, police and pregnant women going to the hospital, that's it."
There was irregular traffic on Wisconsin Avenue, which was not entirely clear of snow at noon Sunday, at least in the Cathedral Heights area near the cathedral.

Adams Morgan/Logan Circle/Dupont Circle: Major roads and even many residential side streets in the Adams Morgan/Logan Circle/Dupont Circle area of the District have been plowed. But in most cases this simply means the snow has been smoothed down, creating a packed surface about an inch thick that is hardening to ice in
many patches. So what few cars are out are proceeding slowly and cautiously.
