今年何度目かのSnow Stormで会社はクローズ。
今朝は駐車場に降り積もった雪を払うのに午前中一杯を費やす。

赴任して最初の3年は積雪でオフィスがクローズになることなんて一度もなかったのに、
昨年の冬は通算で2回、今年もこれが2回目になる。積雪量が増えている?

除雪にかかる費用も州の予算を大幅に超える額が費やされている模様。

The state Department of Transportation had already blown through a $20 million budget for storm cleanup before this week’s foot-plus of snow hit the ground, officials said Thursday.

There have been six significant storm cleanups this season. Beginning Wednesday, the state deployed 2,500 snow-removal vehicles — about 80 percent provided by contractors — to tend to the latest mess, officials said.

State officials said about $25 million was spent on the first five storms. An estimated price tag on this storm wasn’t immediately available.

The DOT can use money budgeted for other items or services to cover emergency snow costs but may have to request an appropriation from the Legislature to balance out the books, spokesman Joe Dee said.
