A snow plow clears a path along E. Overland Road Thursday, December 20, 2012, during a winter storm in Appleton, Wisconsin. The National Weather Service is forecasting nine to 12 inches of snow in the Fox Cities before the storm passes. Dan Powers/The Post-Crescent
PLOWED IN: I would like the city of Appleton to explain why the private sector in snow plowing goes out and plows driveways and parking lots, and then puts salt down. The city of Appleton comes down my street and many other streets - doesn't matter whether the snow is deep or it's a light dusting - and the plow is up and they salt, not once but twice. Then it turns to slush and they plow. Then the temperature drops and the slush turns to ice and, the next time they come plowing through, we have ice boulders blocking our driveway. This don't make one bit of sense to me.
