Some snow job II

I read your headline about road crews being tested by snow squalls (“Snow squalls test road crews,” Dec. 27 and TribLIVE.com). Well, if that was a test, it was a failure in the North Hills.
I have lived in Pittsburgh since 1984 and am astounded that every time it snows here, it is like the first time we have seen snow.
I grew up in Bradford, Pa., where it snows about 20 times more than what we get here. Yet the roads are seldom in bad condition because they plow. If crews plowed the roads in the suburbs, they could reduce the amount of salt and push the snow off the roads.
Maybe somebody from each township should take a trip north to learn about snow removal.
Go to Buffalo, N.Y. It has great road crews (learn something). It's a shame that such a simple concept is lost on so many township road crews.
Put the plow down on the road. It works.
