Chicago recently announced that they’d be sharing the GPS-tracked positions of snowplows online, for people wondering when their neighborhood would be plowed, and what roads are cleared. Now VDOT is doing the same in Virginia, although only upstate. →
Seems only prudent to start out with a test run in a specific region before going statewide. Hope it works.
I believe Jones’ Second Law of Inconvenience states that if you ARE prepared for something, it won’t happen (ex.: the one day you bring your umbrella, of course it’s sunny).
QED, I am dismayed to learn that we won’t get a good snow this year.
I was checking the snow fall and power outages in the Pacific Northwest a few weeks ago and came across this website for tracking snow plow progress in Spokane WA. It is clear now (1 feb 2012) but it is pretty impressive after it has snowed.
This should be neat.. Now just let it snow… I have relatives that live in Northern Va.. Kinda neat to watch this to see our tax dollars at work. One thing I did was back in the days of the sniper was watch the web cams and see how the traffic was backed up. Now bet people didn’t think of that.
