During last month’s back-to-back snow storms, the Kansas Department of Transportation reports their snow crews pretreated and plowed nearly 880,000 miles of highway – enough to circle the earth 35 times.
BY THE NUMBERS
Winter Storms Q and Rocky (weeks of Feb. 18 and 25)
City officials are now saying that they have replenished the supply of sand and salt to treat the roads. However, they are still urging residents to stay home, if possible.
Joe Pajor with the Public Works and Utilities department says they will plow the roads throughout the duration of the storm, but will keep the majority of the salt and sand to treat the roads at the storm's end.
The conservation approach will likely make roads slicker and more difficult to navigate.
Well, we’ve had some snow this winter. That proves there’s no global warming. No, really. Fox News has been all over it. See, they took Al Gore’s book, “An Inconvenient Truth,” and they set it outside in the snow and showed it on camera while they snickered and cackled about how the snow disproved it all.
Yeah. That’s what we’ve come to. Imbecilic “news reports” like that. The “gotcha” mentality rules stronger than ever.
