Rant: Snow removal falls short

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJanuary 13, 2014 

Very disappointed in snow removal so far this winter. Saturday I went from up in the hills to Bellingham, Marysville, Everson and south of there. Everything down below had been plowed well, including the side roads in Nooksack. There was about three times the snow in the hills than there was in Bellingham, yet busy roads like South Pass and Frost Road were a mess. Frost never did get plowed and my traction light came on twice in a short area. At last glance on South Pass east of Kendall highway, it hadn't been plowed either. Now, after the fact, can't they plow the well-used roads in the hills? I feel sorry for the mail carriers and paper delivery drivers.
