    Let me guess…the salt trucks aren’t out because we used up all the salt already. No, that can’t be. Umm…they are short staffed because it is a holiday. Yeah! That sound plausible, let’s go with that one!

    This county is so dysfunctional. It would be funny if people weren’t dying as a result.

      Eight hours later and conditions are actually WORSE! Where is the KCRC???
      Why are they busy making lame excuses to the news media instead of out salting the roads?!
