When in Doubt, Blame The Weatherman Part II

This post got a great reaction from our friend and former Peterson Administration DPW official Mickey Rogers. It is worth posting here:

This from the guy who spent all summer in 2008 preparing neighborhoods for a decrease in DPW reaction to snow with statements like, “How many people here think it’s a waste of money to send our plows out when it only snows 1/4 of an inch to an inch?”

In July, most people raised their hands, not realizing that a) it’s hard to predict snowfall with that kind of certainty when it’s happening; b) if you wait until it gets to that point, you’ve missed the window of opportunity to get the pre-treatment down; and c) when the streets freeze over and people are all over the place in February, no one will remember what they heard from David Sherman in July.
