In very snowy places, they don't do anything to the roads because its hopeless.

Roads get plowed once a week or immediately after a four plus inch fall. After those days, the school had a backhoe that went around digging out cars. At one point, there was over 50 inches of snow on the hood of my car thanks to a drift. It was a mild winter. Didn't start snowing until mid-December then once the first flakes came out of the sky they didn't stop until May.

FYI, Madison WI only averages a "mere" 44 inches a season. Erie is the 13th snowiest city in the US at 89 per season. Pittsburgh is 43 (its 55-60 where I live north of the city).

I'm getting bored with my job and not having enough money to do the stuff I want to. Wish I could find something I really wanted to do and also they'd hire me to do it.
