Iím happy and amazed at how much snow plow drivers get done. I live in an older neighborhood with lots of cars on both sides of the streets. The people choose the street over the alley or their rear-facing garages. Why, I donít know. This is year-round, so itís not access because of lots of snow. Most do not switch sides of even and odd, some donít move at all, and some sit all winter in the same spot.

I think the plows maneuver this obstacle course rather well, and if and when cars are moved, the plows go by again and clean what they can. If you donít get a clean street maybe this is why or call the roads department and let them know your street was missed; after all, the drivers are human.

Also, we havenít had big amounts, so the little snows get packed down and are harder to plow. Good job, plow drivers.
