Essential Government Services

One of the essential functions of any local government north of the 35th parallel is to clear the streets after it snows.

So why is it a full 48 hours after a medium sized storm and I'd be better off hitching up a dogsled than driving a vehicle with actual wheels? It's not like there wasn't advance warning to prepare and stage snow removal equipment.

Bad government services don't only happen on the federal level...
