Yesterday PENNDOT was caught with thier pants down. For those of you who don't know, PENNDOT are the one responsible for keeping the roads clean during inclimate weather (snow). Yesterday my area recieved 8-10 inches of some really heavy wet snow. It wasn't until the afternoon before any plow trucks got out on the road to plow. Why? well it seems they wern't ready for the snow. Not a single truck had any plows on them as they were still being used for road repair. They just wern't expecting any snow! Lets just say driving was HAIRY, to say the least. Even after they began to plow, they were not laying down any cinders to melt the ice. I would prefer to drive in snow than on a sheet of ice. In one of those hope they are OK but serves you right incidents, I was on my way home from work (in which no one showed up exept for myself) I was passed on on non passing road, by a pickup truck with 4 wheel drive. I was doing about 35, which was probably a bit too fast. Two miles down the road, I see the same truck, upsidedown in the woods. I do hope the person is OK, but serves him right. I ended up walking the last quarter mile home as I live atop a long hill, and my little 4 cylinder car would not make it. As I wlked you could just here the tree cracking under the weight of the heavy snow. Some where close and I began to worry that one might fall right on top of me. Here are a few pics I took on my cell phone while walking up the hill.
