The update: Charlie Sykes talked about this on his program this morning. He introduced the segment by referring to the Heidi Bowl. History.com writes:
“On November 17, 1968, the Oakland Raiders score two touchdowns in nine seconds to beat the New York Jets--and no one sees it, because they’re watching the movie Heidi instead. With just 65 seconds left to play, NBC switched off the game in favor of its previously scheduled programming, a made-for-TV version of the children’s story about a young girl and her grandfather in the Alps. Viewers were outraged, and they complained so vociferously that network execs learned a lesson they’ll never forget: ‘Whatever you do,’ one said, ‘you better not leave an NFL football game’."

I don't ask for much for my obscene property taxes. Goodness knows I don't get all that much. But when the weather becomes dangerous could we at least get a timely response?
I've blogged in the past that the guys in the trucks during snowstorms have a tough job, but normally draw praise. Not this time. And that includes those with the decision about when to deploy those trucks.
With all the advance warning of risky traveling conditions, what were the plows and salters waiting for throughout Milwaukee, especially when the initial portion of the storm hit hard and fast?
Hundreds of accidents with fatalities and injuries as roads completely deteriorated.
From mid-morning today through late this afternoon, I spent time on roads in the city of Milwaukee, Franklin, Greendale, and Greenfield. The work done on them was minimal as one accident after another piled up.
The last thing I want to hear from Franklin or any other local municipality come April is bragging about the amount of excess salt they’ve got or a decrease in overtime for snow removal.
UPDATE: Plow came down my street at 10:38 Sunday night. Whoopee. Guaranteed the next time through will be five minutes after my driveway is cleared.
