Plainfield Blizzard of 2010 pix


Patio behind our house.

Two views of Plainfield after the Blizzard of 2010.

Above, the patio at our house. The torch stands mark the near and far ends of the patio. Two feet of snow? I didn't even try to get out back and measure it.

You spend two years in Montana . . . when you look at this you ask, "Do you think it might snow soon?"

I wish I had my camera the day after the blizzard. Driving down Park Ave in S. Plainfield, The road was plowed back to the curbs, and most of the asphalt was exposed. Nice job! A clear, safe roadway!

At the point where you encounter the "Welcome to Plainfield sign, the contrast was startling. There was still at least 6 feet wide or more of snow still unplowed on either side of the street, and what was plowed was hard packed snow and ice. Obviously no salt or sand had been applied yet, and cars were spinning wheels and fishtailng. Most streets in town where poorly plowed even a week or more after the storm. Huge piles of snow were left sticking out into intersections, and there was barely enough room for two cars to pass each other on most of the streets.

How is it S. Plainfield could do such a commendable job clearing away the snow, and the town next door do so poorly?
