What a waste of money. Would it really hurt to keep people off the streets for a couple of days? We spend million just so people can get out and run around and spend money. Most of the time with snow like we got, people will be off work anyways. Look, its snow, got to go someplace.

When I went to work, I had to go in snow, or ice. I cant't tell how many times I got off of work in the morning and faced ice. No workee, no pay.
It do's seem that idiot kids have to get out and see how far they can slide.
I used to live on a road that the kids would go fast enoughto ramp. One day the wife and I were going to town as far to thr right as we could be when a kid came over the hill in the middle of the road. He steered to his right, went off of the road, narrowly missing my neighbor, and his Amish helper. When his parents arrived, he told them that I ran him off the road. Boy was my nighbor PO'ed at that. Icy snow covered conditions, kid had to visit his girlfriend.
We have not had the snow you guys have had this year. Think how much Indy saved last year on snow removal.
