Yeah, cities are trying to ration their snow removal budgets so they don't run out of money like they did last year (and I believe the year before too). In an effort to save a buck, some goofballs in city government use a nice, mellow year as their baseline for budgeting snow removal, rather than using a typical year, and then consider any year that is typical or worse as an aberration and don't adjust their budgets accordingly.
IMO, if one happens to be one of those Utopians who want a world with less cars, smaller governments etc., you'd best be learning to ride in the snow or developing an alternative form of winter commuting.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
