We started getting snow late Tuesday afternoon, until late last night. Cool.We needed that foot of snow. For spring run-off. Other than that...ugh!!!!
About 4.30 am this morning the county had the graders out. They are suppose to do the school bus routes first. News flash! We are not on the school route!!! No kids in school. Ha! Ha! We even got a truck load of gravel this past fall!! It is quite obvious to us, that the school division does not update the county! We think it is great.
Anyways, this is not what this entry is about. It is about the grader operator's job. He isn't very good at it. At all. I'll tell you why.We live on a no exit road. Meaning just that, the road ends here. At our place. Yes, it is great. No traffic. No neighbours, for two miles. Before you come into our driveway, you have to cross a set of railway tracks. It isn't too bad. The train only goes through once a day, at no set time.
What I am trying to get at, is the shitty job the grader operator did. Did you notice it? He was not suppose to leave these 'snow banks' on the tracks. They are mid-thigh deep. I wonder if he is a new operator? I also wonder if CN is going to be sending out there own 'railroad graders' I know that isn't the proper term for them. But we know they exist. We have seen them.
