We've got snow, Canada needs it

February 12, 2010

Congratulations to Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on her sudden but exciting promotion from City Council president to mayor of the great city of Baltimore. I think she will do an awesome job. I'm sorry she was "tossed into the deep end of the pool" head first, metaphorically speaking; however, she stepped up to the plate and took charge in organizing city resources to deal with two record-breaking snowstorms back-to-back.

It has come to my attention that the city is having a problem with snow disposal ("So much snow and few places to put it," Feb. 10). It has also come to my attention that the City of Vancouver needs more snow for the Winter Olympic games. The solution to both our cities' problems is obvious, and would go far to foster goodwill between us and our Canadian neighbors to the north.

Maybe Vancouver would be willing to buy our snow. It would certainly help alleviate Baltimore City's budget shortfall.
