We have been pretty lucky again this winter in the Lansing area because here it is February already and we finally got a significant amount of snow.  Let's face it we could have been dumped for the first time in November.

Only 6 weeks left till the first day of spring on March 20th, and who knows this week may be the biggest snow of the year.  Guess we'll see.

I had a crazy week and got stuck Thursday and had to call for a tow and winch out.  I did see some snowplows were out Thursday after Wednesday's big snow in the Mitten.

Plowing Has Been Slow

I guess many cities didn’t start clearing neighborhood streets until late Thursday and a lot of people were not happy at all about the time it was taking.

Like me, many cars were stuck on residential streets in Lansing since the snow started.

Plow drivers focused on the main roads Wednesday as the snow kept falling since more people use them. City leaders are asking people to be patient, but that patience is as thin as ice. It’s ridiculous. They need to stay on top of that because of car accidents, and a whole bunch of crazy crap, we don’t need that says one Lansing resident. It is frustrating because if I had an emergency, I’d probably be getting stuck out here and not being able to get out.

Hang in there because public service director Andrew Kilpatrick is saying the city won’t get to every street until the weekend. I guess they just don't have enough resources to get it done before that.
