Good call, some of the back roads are still icy.

Why not go ahead and call off school for the rest of the year while you are at it?

I don't understand why the city or STATE don't learn from the northern states that get this weather all the time! This city and state could learn a few things that would help cut down on the amount of time lost in anything! I'm from Massachusettes and that is ONE of the several states that get 10 times what you get here and we keep going. One thing y'all DON'T do around here from what I see is you don't put any salt on the roads to MELT the ice. Then I don't see much in the way of PLOWS to remove snow from streets and sidewalks. So mayor DINK would rather spend the money on a convention center instead of spending it on worthwhile things like 'PUBLIC SAFETY!"

W'eve had less than 7 inches of total snowfall the past two months. Does that justify buying more plows?
