One side road out in BFE they did decide to keep plowing, the one that leads to 2 ski resorts where the tourists flock to, imagine that. One weekend we got like 16" of really thick heavy snow, and any local economy we had left was ground to a halt for a few days. Need an ambulance? Forget it. Unless you had a jacked up 4x4 you werent going anywhere. Well at least recently they decided it didnt save them any money anyway, so maybe theyll at least keep the roads passable this season.
That sucks, sounds like parts of Iowa or Montanna. Around here I cannot complain about snow removal, things are much better than they were even 10 years ago, remembering how they never plowed in the township and we had to avoid the areas without tire marks lest we spin out.
