Snowstorm brought to you by Mother Nature.
Ensuing chaos and cluster-eff brought to you by Murphy, Fulop and the rest of the social, liberal Dems!!
The storm hit much harder than predicted -- it was the worst one-day November snowfall in well over 100 years. As a result, no one was prepared. Not municipalities, not commuters, not transit agencies. Once you had a bunch of vehicles stuck on the roads, the plows and salt spreaders had no way to get through, and couldn't clear anything.
The only way this could have been avoided is if the politicians blatantly ignored the forecast, and committed to expending resources to treat a light dusting like a minor blizzard. At the time that decision had to be made, it would have seemed like an unjustifiable extravagance, and a wasteful one as well.
No one was going to do that. No one did
do that. If they had, and it was a light dusting, they would have been raked over the coals for wasting money.
