4" of snow can cause total chaos if you don't have any equipment to remove snow. Please don't turn this next statement into politics (I'm not trying to be political).....if I lived in a climate that generally had no snow I wouldn't want tax dollars to go to road plows and sidewalk snow throwers and salt trucks and the salt inventory and extra dump trucks to remove the snow that can't be pushed to a safe place by a plow and then you need front end loaders to lift the snow into those dump trucks. I can't even imagine what the budget is manage snow in Milwaukee. I personally know tree removal guys and landscaping guys who mount really nice plows on big trucks and they each do 30 or 40 long rural driveways every time that it snows. It's all cash economy. Guys are making 8 times their mortgage just pushing snow. Managing snow costs a lot of money. I wouldn't want to invest in snow removal equipment if I lived in South Carolina. Yikes. I hope it warms up very soon and all this will melt. In the mean time stay home and watch movies. Grab a beer a nice blanket and watch a long movie. It helps.
