(WJLA) - It didn’t really matter what you were driving – this side street in Anacostia was so slick that all drivers had a tough time getting up and down the hill.

Now, the cleanup is on all over D.C., with special attention being given to the sidewalks around city schools.

"It's still a lot of snow...we hope it's the last one -- it takes a toll on your back," says snow removal worker Morris Henderson.

We spotted dozens of snow plows working to clear the streets, but under all of that snow is a layer of ice as temperatures drop and digging becomes even harder.

"I believe I am hitting ice where the pedestrians have gone up and down," says D.C. resident Judith Mangubat.

A team of volunteers from SnowCrew is clearing the snow away from the van of a disabled resident who logged on to the group’s new website to ask for help.

"Help them get to work, to the doctors appointment, to the pharmacy, to the food store...whatever they need," says volunteer Joseph Porcelli.

So if you plan to head out come morning, D.C. government has a way that you can look at the main roads in your area. Click on the traffic cams at Snow.DC.gov so you can see for yourself.
