We haven’t seen many snow plows in these parts this winter. But snow was on a lot of people’s minds. Based on last year’s snow fiasco, the City of Spokane revealed a new ‘Snow Plan’ for the winter of 2009-10 that included an interactive web map that shows which streets have been plowed and which will be plowed soon. Not that any will be plowed soon because we don’t have any snow, but you get the idea.
Well, that proactive website earned the City the #1 position for the ’10 Best Cities for Tracking Snow Removal Online,’ as ranked by the ‘OhMyGov’ website. So here’s the list. Read it and weep, and good job City of Spokane. Now people can go back to mocking us for our love of marmots instead of our snow issues.
