The Morning Commute

I just learned something new this morning: Franklin Road between Cole and Vista, and most of Capitol Boulevard, qualify as "back streets" not worthy of snow and ice removal. There was not one grain of sand or drop of de-icer even in the intersections: it was a skating rink all the way into downtown. Coworkers slipping and sliding in from various parts of the valley reported similar conditions.

The Ada County Highway District is in charge of winter road maintenance. No wonder so many people have signs in their front yards showing "ACHD" in a circle with a line through it.
