JIM THORPE --- Faced with the threat of another snowstorm this week, communities all over our area are racing to remove snow and ice still on the ground from the last snowstorm.

Carbon County is one part of our area that's expecting to get walloped by the next storm

The clock is ticking for public works crews in Jim Thorpe to get all of this off the road. Mounds of snow, curbside slush, tons of it left over from storms last week.

"We're trying to get the meters cleaned and we're doing the best we can to get broadway cleared for them. As soon as we get there, they just got to be patient, we'll get there," said public service supervisor Jim Trainer.
Some worry all of this snow is taking a toll on business. Business owners like Michelle Gallagher are concerned that this white stuff on the street, is taking away from parking.

"There is no parking. Parking is always an issue here in town and hopefully that will be resolved here very soon," said Gallagher.

Newswatch 16 found huge piles of snow aren't just causing problems in Jim Thorpe.

In Palmerton, crews are working around the clock to remove snow before the next winter storm.
