But the real story yesterday was the pathetic condition of our roads in Flagstaff. The ice in the morning caused hundreds of near misses, plenty of car accidents and a number of slips and falls with injuries. Everything was wet, then the temperature dropped. I was out and about at just before 5 am and couldn’t believe I didn’t see a single salt or cinder truck in town. Same at 6:30 am. After 7am they started to show up. Where the heck were they? The city just isn’t supplying the service they have in the past.
What was the school system thinking? Not even a two-hour delay? Ever seen the rear end of a school bus start to slip and head straight for your car? Enough of the ranting.
The 6-14 day outlooks seem to keep the moisture coming to us. I think temperatures might be similar to last weekend and much of this could fall as rain. The first round will be late this weekend and may only bring light precipitation amounts.
