THE BRONX - As more snow bore down on the Bronx Saturday, many residents were still digging out from snow dumped by storms earlier in the season.

Paula Stanislas, 65, says she has been out after every storm to clear her driveway, but the amount of accumulation has become too much for her to handle. She has now run out of space to put shoveled snow, with mounds piling several feet high.

Stanislas is not the only resident on Creston Avenue facing this problem, as giant mounds of old, frozen snow can be seen lining the entire street.

But mounds of snow are only part of the problem for residents there. Layers of ice are caked onto the street and potholes run rampant and unfilled.

One resident says they have only seen one small, private truck come down the road to plow.
