Overnight, Central Illinois was dusted with a little bit of snow. I don’t know what the final totals are but I suspect it’s something like 2-2.5″.
Last night on TV, our local “news” station was doing the typical reporting about how the salt trucks were getting ready to start driving around, blah blah. Then the reporter brought up “concerns” people had about the City being able to pay for the overtime for the drivers! Seriously, this is the first light snow of the season – do you honestly believe that the City wouldn’t be able to pay already??
“Uh, folks… we’re sorry to say that today we exhausted our snow removal funds. We just didn’t think it was going to snow this year in the Midwest…”. Come on people, use your brains.
