For those of you that have never been to Erie before in the winter, well, have you ever seen that movie Misery? or Fargo? Yeah, you get the idea — it’s snowy as hell. In fact, the first time Grey ever came to visit me there, his two day visit turned into a week long stay because we had so much snow the Governor declared the area a state of emergency.
But the funny thing is, driving in Erie is never an issue because of bad roads. I don’t even understand how, but our little city of 100,000 people has the most efficient plowers in Northern Hemisphere. Either that, or in addition to more bars and churches per capita than any other American town, the city of Erie also has more snow removal trucks. Is there an army of 10,000 orange CAT big rigs with jumbo plows just sitting in a giant parking lot somewhere in the northwest corner of PA? I don’t know, but whatever they do — they do it right!
