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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
