City prepares for Friday snowstorm

Public Works Director Walter Veselka said that snowplow operators and other necessary personnel are going to start getting ready at 7 a.m. to deal with Friday's predicted storm.
Veselka said that forecasters have told the city to expect the snow to begin about 10:30 a.m. and continue until about 9 p.m., with the heaviest snowfall between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. He said it is likely to total between 6 and 10 inches in Bristol.
This year, for the first time, the city is using an ice melting chemical across town. It should cut down on the sand and grit on city roads.

didn't have anything else to do but have your nose pressed against the window pane to see the big, big plow truck go by?

6 times the first 3 hours and then nothing again until after midnight.
Who coordinates their schedule?

Doesn't seem like they are very efficient or interetted in saving money.

ALL city trucks

And it is hard not to notice when on truck just follows another.

Thanks Art
