Would like to know why snow plows only the center of side roads.....shoving huge build up of snow on mail boxes. Try to get to those boxes from the road to deliver the mail It's at least 4 ft wide and up to 2 ft high...Think maybe you could plow a bit closer?

There are only a few guys to open many miles of road. One pass through is usually all the can do to get as many open as possible.They also don't have time to move snow to specified places away from mailboxes. If they have time later they do come back and dig out from around them. Patience.

I am pretty sure the snow fell on Thursday, not Wednesday, because Thursday I needed to go to work and I had to plow through snow, but I drove all over town on Wednesday and didn't encounter any snow at all.

I know the Post is slim on staff and doesn't have a proofreader at present, but really, can we get the day correct?

I just wish people would wise up when it snows. If you own a 2WD vehicle please stay off the road so those of us who were wise enough to buy a 4WD can still get to work.

The cops need to start implementing $1000 fines for people that do not comply with 4x4 or chains required. Lets face it people are idiots and they mess it up for everybody else.
