Plow Armada?

So has anyone witnessed this so-called “snow plow armada” servicing our beleagured side streets? The fleet of 30 some odd plows that our mayor has been hyping for the last 72 hours after he got ripped in the national media for his handling of Blizzard part 1?

Just curious.

Out here in Nome, Alaska City Park West, roads still suck the big one. I suppose it could be worse, at least I can walk to a liquor store. Priorities, dammit.

In other news, a friend made me insanely jealous when she trekked over from Capitol Hill with these really cool thingymobobs called Yax Tracks. Tracktion action. I tried to pick some up myself, but the nearest sporting good store was sold out.


The only other thing I’d like to complain about is the cruel injustice of Denver getting dumped on twice and the central mountains not getting diddly shit. Oh winter weather, you are a cruel mistress.

    Out here in YuppyVille (Highlands Ranch) we finally started seeing plows yesterday sometime. Roads still worse than my wife or I expected them to be, but at least mostly passable

    Out here in Parker – you could hear the constant beeping of the tractors going back and forth on our streets well into midnight. We can actually see the road here. Life is getting normal again.

    Yep, me too. I’m out near DIA and tonite was the first time I’ve ever seen a snowplow.

    We’ve had a few plows now, and.. a few really large tractors… the main road by us is mostly clear now. our stret has about 3 inches of ice/snow pack, you can see/feel it as you turn off the main road.

    And now lots and lots of ice between our snow islands which are between every driveway.
