SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – Tuesday was a busy day for crews trying to keep roadways clear across the state.
The constantly falling snow is making it tough keeping up with the task. Some road crew workers were on the job Monday night and most likely won't be done until sometime Tuesday.
"It's a nonstop storm you're continually going round and round," said Howie Leighton,a plow operator with South Portland Public Services.
When a winter storm hits Leighton is part of the South Portland crew that's first to show up and the last to leave. He came in at 9 p.m. Monday to catch some sleep on a cot, before starting salting operations at 2 a.m. A few hours later, it was on to a long day of plowing.
