Have you heard? We’re looking at Snowmageddon 2016:¬†Snow Much Snow. Most of us will spend the blizzardy day(s) curled up at home or fighting neighbors over parking places. Other unfortunate souls will be camped out at the airport, hoping that their flight out of town isn’t grounded.

At the time of Baltimore’s 2010 Snowpocalypse, I was living on Venable Avenue in Waverly. The street was literally never plowed. My neighbors and I eventually had to clear the block with shovels. Actually, it was a pretty good bonding experience.

But the State Highway Administration doesn’t want to be caught with insufficient resources the next time we experience an actual blizzard. To that end, the SHA has added two nasty double-wing snow plows — for a total of three such $200,000 unstoppable snow-killers — to its fleet of 2,400 plows, salt-spreaders, and magnesium chloride trucks.
