Back in Action
Well I made it to work today, even if the drive in was a little treacherous. So presumably the worst has passed. Still a lot of ice on the road I live on, but once you get to a major road or highway, things are passable. You just have to pay attention because there are big clumps of ice everywhere. Sunny out there today so hopefully that will remove more ice, but its' still very cold. Presumably temperatures are supposed to get above freezing tomorrow and Saturday, which will help some more. Still, this is the biggest winter weather event we've had in maybe a decade, so it's been pretty wild. I've seen a lot of folks complaining that the DOT didn't handle things well or quickly enough, but seriously, you can't have a giant fleet of salt and sand trucks just sitting around in a state where it hardly ever snows.
