Gene Yoakum, of north Spokane, makes it down his ramp to the sidewalk and his mailbox on Friday. He lost a leg in an accident, then was partially paralyzed by a stroke. He still likes to get out to the bus stop and travel on days when he can find his way around the snow berms.

Jeffrey Crouch makes his way east on Broadway Avenue near Maple Street in Spokane on Wednesday. Crouch had to travel in the road because the deep snow made the sidewalks impassable.
