The warm dry winter we’ve been having in the Inland Northwest is translating into savings for the City of Spokane.
So far, the lack of snowfall at the end of 2011 saved the city about $100,000 in snow removal costs. So where will that money go? And what are City plow drivers doing to keep busy? KREM 2 News has the answers.
So maybe they can plow the side streets quicker? Maybe they will stop burying the sidewalks??
Maybe! It will be nice to have that cushion in case 2012 does turn into a snowy tundra like recent past years. I saw a post on Twitter today that made me laugh. One person tweeted "I'm new here. So this is Spokane in January?" And someone else replied. "No, it usually looks like the Donner Party encampment."
