"January Thaw" -- just hope it doesn't turn into an:
"Ice Storm" which can happen in a
'blink of an eye'! We are so lucky we never got what happened prior to Xmas and into the New Year for a lot of folks! As we very well could have.

why does everyone want to crap on the plow drivers ?? u should go live in other communities and see how their roads are plowed u will move back here pretty quick . obviosly some people dont know a good thing when they have it . if it is ever removed u will know itand then appreciate it . . praise the plow drivers who risk their lives every time there is a bad storm they actually do a helluva job including sanding operations.

Well written jake02....I wish more people would stand up for those guys....Being in the public eye and having people bash you all the time is just sad....those Heavy Equipment Operator's are out there so we can get to work safely, our children to school each morning and "weather" some people are critical of their 24/7 efforts, this city would shut down without them!
