Why does it take so long to clear
subdivision streets during major storms?
Heavy or deep snows slow plow truck
progress so it may take longer for plows to
reach your street. Narrow streets, hills and
curves, parked cars and smaller cul-de-sacs
also slow plowing operations.
What should my subdivision street look
like after a major snowstorm?
During snowstorms of 8 inches or more, your
street will have only one travel lane plowed
initially and it may be snow-packed, making
all-weather tires a must. Crews will continue
plowing until your roadway is clear.
A lot of people in northern Virginia don't know how to safely drive in snow. That would be a good reason to not require people to come to work. But those same people don't have sense enough to stay home!
it is a good thing we don't get much snow our allotment would be stranded until the owner found someone to plow us out! :my lord:
Another thing, JollyElfDC, it's always difficult to find yourself in a new culture where things are different from what you've been used to. :dizzy: If you're from Pittsburgh and you go to Montgomery, AL, or another town in the south, there's sure to be someone who will say, "You're not from around here, are you? I had a friend once who talked like you. Let me think, where was she from?" Or if you go to Arkansas or Oklahoma from New York, someone will call you a foreigner. :santahat: That one really gets me, but it's just their culture. When we moved here from Virginia, it took my husband about ten years to stop telling me that the person ahead of him didn't use a signal light.
LOL! I totaly agree! Although I think the signal light thing has spread across the country. LOL!
