Road response seems slow to weather reports of snow

Before the snow started, everyone was aware that it was going to start snowing Feb. 3. By the end of the day, everyone should have been aware that it was going to amount to more than an inch or two and that it was going to stick.

Fast-forward to Monday morning, and I headed in to work at 5 a.m. and there’s no sand; nothing has been plowed; nothing but snow and ice on the roads.

With the money we pay, shouldn’t we see more proactive efforts to improve safety when winter conditions are extreme? There’s absolutely no excuse for this total and utter incompetence.
