Tuesday's thaw plus a drop in temperatures and rain last night means the Quad Cities has prime conditions for refreezing on sidewalks and streets. All this melt has to get to the river somehow. City storm sewers are often the most direct route, but those can be clogged up with snow and ice. Many city streets have gallons of snow melt, pooling along the street or at an intersection with nowhere to go.
