Snow happens, deal with it

Bear in mind that snow falls in a few large lumps, which might happen at inconvenient times, separated by periods of little or no snow. If the city had enough equipment and staff to clear the large dumps in two or three days, there would be periods when a lot of expensive equipment and workers sat idle. Not many of us would like that.

So folks, there will be times when we have to behave like adults and suck it up.

Ross Pearce,

Prince George
