To those blaming DOT. It's not them. They don't have the resources or budget to handle this type ofRead More situation. The biggest contributing factor was the schools Douglas County School System not being closed in preparation for this. Remember when they pre-closed the schools because of Cold? (That was a questionable decision, pre-closing for this event wouldn't have been) The schools announced mid-day that they were closing early. BAM - Everyone starts leaving work and their homes at the same time to get their kids, then people start getting calls from their kids that the buses are running late or that they see accidents, my daughter included, BAM again. All you see and hear in your head as a parent is "I gotta go get my kid before something bad happens". This situation still would've been bad, but it was much worse but not pre-closing the schools. They need to pre-close for Thursday now so parents and care-givers have one less thing to worry about or plan for today. If they can pre-close for "Cold" they can pre-close for this.

This was only a couple of inches of snow. I hate to think what would happen if we ever got fourteenRead More inches of snow like we did up North. The soft snow quickly harden into ice due to a lack of plowing. Cars running over the soft snow caused it to compact and become slick. Since the residential neighborhoods never get salted, they have become hazardous.
