If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

I thought of putting this in the "Madison sucks at snow removal" thread but since I'm praising the snow plow crew that seemed like the wrong title.

We were absolutely positive we wouldn't see a plow till sometime tomorrow but those guys came by this afternoon with two trucks and got the street scraped down good and proper. All the way out to the edges even, if there weren't any cars.

I had to get out and blow the sidewalk twice because they threw the snow right over the bank and completely filled it up again but what the hey. I am pleased to have the first heavy snow not end up as a pattern of ruts like a slot car track.

I shoveled, didn't bother with the bottom of the driveway because the plow hadn't been by, went back out after they came through and finished- a couple of hours later they came through again & I watched, resigned, as they covered the end of the driveway again...but the small plow backed up, came back and pushed that snow to the end of the street too. Yay.

The plows must have made at least one more run down the street. We watched a guy dig out his car across the street about ten thirty and left a mess in front of our neighbor's driveway. I was thinking I'd probably end up shoveling that out after work today because she's got a bad back. But this morning it was cleaned up and her apron only had a small snowbank in it. They must have come by during the alternate side hours because the whole street was done.

This winter's starting out a lot better than the last one.

No wonder the building codes for roofs up north are written for greater load bearing capacity.
