What Grade Would You Give Dedham for Plowing the Streets?
Dedham residents, how well did the town handle the snowstorm?
Is your street clear? Are you still buried? Is your mailbox still standing?
On Friday and Saturday, Newport experienced a snow storm it will not soon forget. Several residents took to Facebook, the Patch site and Twitter to talk about the plowing.
Here's what a few residents had to say:

@DedhamPatch: What's up with the roads in Dedham? Why haven't East, High streets been plowed?jeanne Punch Could not believe the conditions of the roads in Dedham...not just a few but every main road in Dedham was deplorable!!!! No EXCUSES DEDHAM.....they were well informed that this storm was coming and with the 24 hours driving ban plenty of time to clean up!!!! A disgrace!!!!
Stephanie Matern Agreed! East Street looked like it hadn't been plowed! I had people come to my house from neighboring towns and no one could get over how awful the roads were. There was NO excuse for the road conditions.
Tina Whalen I would love to disagree, but I just can not. Elmview Place, which is the exit to the gym of the High School got one pass. Not only that, they stopped before the end of the street and just went into the school parking lot. Missed the bottom half of the street and left the end house snowed in. Saw four plows go by the street with the blade up. Just saw the Custodians taking snow from the parking lot in the school pick up - this is going to be a long night for them.
As the piles of snow remain, we want to know how you grade the town's response (or state's) to yesterday's major snowstorm. Does the town get an A? B? C? F?
