When mother nature is playing hardball by dumping inch after inch of snow while providing temperatures that result in nothing but ice you are forced to take matters into your own hands. A few days ago I watched as Syracuse DPW crews cleaned out the area surrounding Columbus Circle. Workers with snow blowers and small tractors created a large pile of snow that kept a John Deere 624K loader busy filling a revolving line of dump trucks.
Although a DPW pickup was used to block the road drivers insisted on squeezing in behind the arriving trucks in some vain attempt to get to their destination. Despite their quick moves they would be forced to wait until the active truck was loaded. Watching their crazed reactions was almost enjoyable as seeing the heavy equipment in action.
I grabbed some decent video footage as well for the coming “super plow” video. Stay tuned.
