I drove from Aurora to DIA this morning with no issues. The streets were in decent shape, just a little slow going.

But, those cities do not have a close relationship with the Sun God Ra.

Yeah, I have to agree with this. In Boston, they had to plow ASAP because once that stuff froze it was like concrete and it was there until June. While the lack of plowing here is frustrating, it's still a reality that it gets melted off pretty quickly esp. on the main roads. So I can understand why it's a hard sell to convince people to put lots of money into buying more trucks and plows.

However, I do wish the Stapleton MCA would actually plow the alleys because since they are shadowed between buildings and it quickly turns into packed down ice ruts and those do end up being the last thing to melt.

I drove into work today. It was iced packed and there were lots of abandoned cars on the roads. The sun was brutal. Our street got plowed this morning which pretty much blocked everyone in on my side of the street. I just rammed my way out of it with the 4Runner.

This morning, the only part of my drive which was bad was just getting out of my driveway. A plow came through in the middle of the night and created a 2 foot wall of snow blocking everyone's driveway. The problem was this wasn't light fluffy snow. It was basically a pile of iceballs 2 feet tall. Prior to the plow, the street was decent because enough vehicles drove through it to pack down the snow.

All the main roads in southern Boulder Co and northern Jefferson are snow free. Parking lots are a different story.

Getting out of the neighborhood was the worst part. Once I did that, the main roads were fine. That was late morning.

I ended up working from home all day, once I got started, it just didn't seem appealing to stop and drive into work. Back to the real world tomorrow after these couple of days at home.
