First Drifts, Now, ‘Windrows of Snow’ for Sioux Falls Motorists
Wintertime presents challenges for those in the country and in the city. Our friends in the country were, and still are, dealing with snow.
In Sioux Falls one of the latest challenges is dodging or avoiding areas where crews are moving some of the piles from the shoulder of the road, 'back to the road' in what I call a windrow of snow, to be loaded onto trucks.
So, a windrow? That's what farmers call the line of hay or swath that's been cut and ready to bale. In town, that snow is being bladed off some of the drifts and hauled away. If you've been caught in traffic for one of the operations around town you know what I'm talking about.
It's not a complaint, just an observation. The snow needs to be honed off the top and pulled, pilled, and hauled, otherwise, if we get another big storm and strong winds, we'll be in deeper trouble.
So, here's a shout-out to the crews, blading, hauling, and piling! Winter 2023 is underway in Sioux Falls. And here's the finding an alternate route, when you see the crews doing their jobs!
