>Snow!

>We got about 12 inches of snow on Monday and Tuesday of this week. It took forever for the plows to arrive. Evidently, there was some kind of communication problem between the City of Noblesville, and our property management company. The property mgmt company is responsible for plowing the cul-de-sacs and “courts” (roads leading to cul-de sacs). The city is responsible for plowing all of the “through” roads.

The snow stopped falling around 5 or 6am on Wednesday. I shoveled my sidewalks and driveway in the morning. This took a few hours. Then I went back inside and waited for the plows to show up and clear a path for us to get out. After several hours of waiting, I started to wonder if they would ever come. I was supposed to go to work on Wednesday night, but the 2 feet of snow was too much for my car to navigate. Eventually I had to call in and tell the charge nurse that I couldn’t come.

Next morning I woke up to find that sometime between midnight and 7am they plowed our cul-de-sac (which is Frog for “dead end”). but the rest of the roads were still pretty bad. Evidently what happened is that the City plows never showed up for some reason (we still don’t know), and the property management people were waiting for the city to plow the roads so they could come in and do the cul de sacs. Eventually the property mgmt folks just came in and plowed the whole thing themselves.

So I am kind of frustrated about the whole thing. In Iowa, they never got it perfect, but the plows were out while the snow was still falling, and your street got plowed within hours of the storm’s end. Here in Indianapolis, they are used to a lot less snow (and less often).

Now it is snowing again, here on Saturday morning. It is supposed to last until about 7pm (when my shift starts), and we are supposed to get another 2-4 inches. I drove home through the first inch this morning, and some idiot cut me off.

I think that this shows that idiots abound in this area, and the most dangerous part of the drive is not the snow, but the morons around you. This accident happened on a road that I drive on every time I go to work. Everybody stay safe this winter!
