Snow removal: Who's got a better plan?

February 11, 2010

Regarding the "Be Realistic About Snow Removal" editorial (Feb. 11), I couldn't agree more. I grew up in Michigan, and getting hit by back to back storms of this size would present a problem even up there. Granted, it would have been handled better, but they are equipped for it, and the people know what it takes to get through it. This is the snowiest winter on record in Maryland, and the state is not equipped to handle snow of this magnitude, nor should it be. It would be a huge waste of money to purchase and maintain equipment that could handle this when this kind of winter comes around only once in a lifetime. If you really want to gripe, head down to northern Virginia and see how they are handling the snow. You might think you are pretty lucky to be up here. In the meantime, if you have any better ideas, please step forward.
