On some of Pittsburgh’s steepest streets, people are bracing themselves for the severity of Sunday’s snowstorm.

“It gets pretty terrible with ice and the snow, especially on the street,” Denasia Dolby said.

Dolby is all too familiar with an icy Canton Avenue. It’s in Pittsburgh’s Beechview neighborhood.

“I’ll get stuck trying to go up that hill, and trying to go down this hill,” Dolby said.

In Brookline, Harry Satterwhite moves his car to the top of the hill on Flatbush Avenue before it’s too late.

“We parked up the street. That way we won’t get trapped so to speak, because it gets really, really, bad here, so we park up the street, that way we can get to and from work, and then you can get on the main roads,” Satterwhite said.

They do that until it’s safe to drive again, salting the sidewalks in the meantime.

“We have cobblestone roads, and this gets very, very icy,” Satterwhite said.

One neighbor on Fallowfield Avenue in Beechview said their car has been hit by a sliding car seven times over the past 10 years.

Now, there’s just one more day to get prepared.

“We’ll go out and get a lot of the necessities, and groceries, and everything, salt, shovel, and just get ready for it,” Dolby said.
