The Snowstorm Chronicles - The Plow Arrives

Most of our friends in Bowie and most of our neighborhood saw the plows before we did. A plow finally arrived at 4:30pm this afternoon. Unfortunately they sent a pick-up to plow 24 inches of untouched snow on a road with a slight incline. The only way he could handle it was to plow it like a parking lot. He only finished about 20% of the street before he left. It appeared that he may have broken something on his plow. Luckily our driveway is in the 20% of the road that he finished. Unfortunately it was late enough in the day that we didn't get the benefit of the sun to melt what was left on the road, and the road is pretty slick tonight.

Here's a short video showing his plowing technique for our road. You can hear my son in the background watching car races on television.
