Interesting comments on cars in the old days. I remember when $2,500.00 would buy a full size sedan with two-tone paint, a color coordinated interior, vinyl roof, wrap around windshield, white wall tires, eight cylinder engine and nearly twenty feet of pure luxury. In today's world you get a vehicle for $35,000 that is dependable and fuel efficient with plenty of electronics but what ever happened to style and beauty?

poor workman blame their tools, in this case it must be operations manual the "book"/ apparently directions for who, what where, why and how to take care of city street snow removal, the book is managed by street dept. supervisor, who by the way is offspring of "godfather Chuck", so we can only conclude that PPP for snow removal and other dept. woes come from political nepotism so when your streets are a mess, understand supervisor for street dept. is more suited to picnic planning and barbequing that supervising street dept. affairs.... your welcome

Czychrab, modern cars weigh more than their earlier counterparts did due to increased regulations, and added conveniences. That the manufacturers use aluminum, carbon fiber, etc. is only to save weight to keep the heft down. But, the cost to use such materials goes up, so they have to compromise in order to meet spec's for not only safety, but CAFE requirements, along with making sure that people in the back seat can watch DVD's and keep cool with A/C while you're traveling.

Yes Observer it snows when people go to and come home from work. Unless you have a way of fooling Mother Nature then get off the topic of snow and down to some real reporting.

Remember when cars didn't have to be light-weight and fuel efficient? We never stayed home if it snowed, never! So progress is biting us in the wheels, who knew?

I might be way off base here but hasn't Dunkirk always a had lake effect snow from Lake Erie. Now why would the snow make the news? Every year even before Dunkirk was a city this area has always seen snow. Is the Observer that desperate for a story? Must be. Perhaps the Observer can inform the taxpayer on the cost of overtime associated with this storm. I must say the news is getting further away from what goes on in the city. Kinda like Washington.

I don't know what all the fuss is about. Just leave early, drive slow, no problem at all. Just ask JoeW, we don't need plows at all.

This has to be a major headache for local street departments. Central Ave. going south was barely driveable at 1:00 PM today. I wonder if any thoughtr has been given to hiring private contractors to at least help with the side streets.

weather forecasting is like the reporting in this paper " hit or miss" at best, must be some one looked out the window before writing this, because they sure did not read the weather forecast that they print.....your welcome
