The snow crews were ready today. Wherever I went I saw them in their trucks, plows mounted, beds full of salt, waiting patiently for the call to take on the predicted storm. There were county crews, state crews, power company crews and a host of private plow drivers that look forward to making a few extra bucks when the snow falls. They were pumped.
The call never came.
It’s been lean times in the loco snow emergency business this year. Despite the ominous signs we received back in October, this winter has been a bust when it comes to snow.
To be fair, it could have easily gone the other way today. A few degrees cooler and we would have had a winter mess on the drive home.
And these guys would have been ready.
