Back in the days this was a dusting of snow. God help us when we get 2-3 feet of snow like the old days. City will shut down till spring. Why do we only hear about Utica complaining? Because the city is so stupid, nobody has a clue of how to run a city. NH,Wboro and county don't say a word, they just do the job. Utica is an embarressment to central NY.

nothing but excuses that only the uninformed believe. 60 guys and 17 plows and you blame budget cuts and say you don't have the manpower? lol

It's winter in upstate NY. WTF! The more people talk about it, the more they get scared. Feeding frenzy, mob mentality.

The panic is not because of the snow itself, but because the DPW is so woefully inadequate at dealing with it.

Maybe The suburbs don't panic because they only have a fraction of the the amount of roads that Utica has... Stop and think before posting nonsense

Several Reasons

This was not that much snow.

The reasons are:

1. MEDIA AND GLOBAL WARMING: The media wants us to believe that anything but a nice sunny day is because of "climate change," the fictitious crisis created by the left. The attribute heat, cold, snow, rain, drought, ice, hail and lightning to global warming. Some of these morons actually attributed the earthquake that caused the Tsunami in Japan to global warming.

2. DON SHIPMAN and OTHER PANSIES: Don Shipman is a complete sissy. He is like a teenage girl and this small amount of snow and the cold has caused him mild discomfort. He and his "life partner" might actually have to pause the episode of Dance Moms on the DVR to turn up the furnace a degree.

3. LIBERALS: Upstate New York is now full of whining, sniveling liberal children who can't do for themselves. They still have to clear their own driveways and brush off their own cars. The government doesn't do that...YET.

4. STUPIDITY: Where just 15 years ago, people would go out, shovel, come inside and sleep with their female wives; today, we have facebook. Now, we must spend 2 hours updating and checking the updates of others to see how the snow may have impacted them. In general, its nothing more than mild discomfort and slight inconvenience. Then its on to watching a parody of the latest parody of "What does the fox say?" Then maybe, if you weren't lucky enough to have someone else shovel for you, you will go out and try to drive your Prius, Yarus, Elantra or other piece of crap over the snowbank.

I almost forgot:

BLACKS: When Utica used to get real snow, and will again once this normal climactic cycle changes, there were very few blacks. Those who were here actually had to try to look like they were doing something. Today, they refuse. Besides, why bother clearing the driveway if you don't have to go to work anyway.
Pathetic

All areas surrounding Utica are plowed clean. State roads are bare. Cross the city line and Utica's roads still suck!
