The blizzards and ice have caused a 45 mile backup of stopped cars on one highway. The Army is driving tanks on the road to break up the ice.
Tanks? Do they not have snow plows? Guess not. And tanks could well break up the road as well as the ice. Plus, breaking up the ice is only part of the job, another vehicle then needs to push the ice off the road.
Sure, they are having freak cold and snow, but when large areas have been without power for days with transportation nearly shut down then one wonders if the government is able to cope.
Comparisons to the US government’s response to Hurricane Katrina are certainly in order.
