Looking up snowy Graig Park Avenue, Newport
Looking up snowy Graig Park Avenue, Newport
There was a snowfall ranging from 4 inches (10cm) at lower levels up to about 6 inches (15cm) at higher elevations in the city overnight January 5th/6th 2010.
Main roads were quickly cleared, but side roads remained mostly snow-covered, causing difficulties for drivers in the hillier parts of the city.

This view is of the top end of one of the steeper side roads, Graig Park Avenue as it approaches its end at the edge of Graig Wood. A resident told me that he was able to drive his car down the hill, but when he tried to drive back up later on, his car couldn't climb the snowy hill. He left this car overnight, hoping to reverse back to the main road the following day, but found that he was boxed in by other cars whose drivers had had the same problem.
