    For tomorrow.

    Cuomo said New York State has prepared a total of 1,793 plows, 4,184 plow drivers, 55 front-end loaders and nearly 500,000 tons of salt in preparation for the snow. He activated the emergency operations center to monitor the storm and storm response.

    Cuomo asked for drivers not to travel if they can avoid it.

    Saw plenty of his sucking up during the 7ft storm back in November and it's a given was election time comes around next time he'll use it in his campaign. Or version Dickenpooper did this but using the flood last year on his soap box.....

    There no contesting that, there's many of us in the state that would like to return Denver/Boulder back to it's natural state of being rolling prairie. Unfortunately these areas are where the majority of the voters in the state are and they're liberals.

    LOL, those numbers are staggering though... most of us are happy with ONE extra truck, plow or spreader to boast about for account purposes!
