    What a disaster getting the school children out of the Middle School on Friday. Cars sliding through the stop sign on Washington St. Cars could not get up Washington St. fro School St. Oakley Road jammed up. Thanks to the parents and the children as they tried to make it. I cautioned the children to be very careful as they left the Chenery. Middle School. Thanks to the parents for their understanding as to why I was detouring them. Thanks to the Belmont Police and the Highway Dept. for their co-operation. Once we were able to get the plows and salters thru, in 10 minutes the situation improved. Also had to deal with 2 MVAs during this period.
