It doesn't matter if DOWNTOWN Wilmington was located in the North, or West rather than being on the S.E. coast. During the ice storm and the previous snow storm, conditions in downtown Wilmington were abominable, and unsafe-both on the roads and sidewalks. Every road downtown and sidewalk was blanketed in snow and then ice for days until temperatures rose. Every city should have plows, salt and ample sand to at least make the main roads and sidewalks in its downtown area safe. O saw 8 cars wreck or wipe out and over a dozen people fall because little or no attempt was made to clear the downtown roads and sidewalks during each storm. Abominable.
