Reader: The Best to Deal With Denver's Crappy Snow Plowing Is to Skip Work

In a recent Comment of the Day, one of our readers deemed Denver's snow removal as a bad joke.

At the time he wrote, he noted that his street was still crusted with the remains of two previous storms as another one approached.

His take definitely revved up our Facebook friends, who shared plenty of their own horror stories.

Fortunately, one person offered a simple solution.

They're not going to pay $$$ on snow removal, especially when no one wants to pay for it. The snow usually melts by the next day or two 90% of the time. Don't drive to work that day. It's okay, no one is going to miss you and your job isn't as important as you think it is.
