Storm-Related Road Closures in Four Central Pennsylvania Counties



Anonymous said...

I remember when I was a kid 50+ years ago, we had snow, Ice and rain storms that seemed or where alot worse than the ones we see today. Most cars did not have all wheel drive. Yet mom and Dad made it back and fourth to work. The roads were kept reasonably cleared there wasn't alot of flooding and the electricity didn't go out everytime the wind blew.

What does this say about what's going on today? The easy winters we've had for the past couple years have caused us to develope some bad habits. The structure or lack of maintenance on our electric lines seem to be in disrepair.

The lack of attention to our streams (not being allowed to clean out gravel bars or clogs of wood),or even standing timber on our stream beds - because of the DEP also seem to add to the flooding or general flow of the water.

It's a shame that we've become so regulated that the simple things we could do to avoid these damaging events - can no longer be done.

Shame on all of us for allowing it to get this way.

The trouble is government and private companys have become to big and lazy. The higher up's lay off contractors and labor so they can give themselves more money. The unions have also had a hand in killing many job duties. Bunny lovin tree huggers fear you may kill a bug .The list is endless.

The companies are tired of carrying dead weight like you. We also like our bunnies extra crispy and we use our trees for firewood that someone else cuts for us.
