    I'm a new englander lvinig in Virginia. Virginia snow is worse. Not always, but often, ne snow is dry and cold and it behaves like sand. Virginia snow is wet, heavy, and slushy. It is prone to redressed into lethal chunks or ruts like railroad tracks.Also, I notice that here they are called snow plows, but in ne they are road scraper. For a reason. In ne follow a snow plow at night and it is throwing a continual shower of sparks, which you never see in VA. I think they operate in ne with much more down pressure. In my town in new England sop was to hire anyone who showed up to shovel the town sidewalks. You could have six inches of snow at midnight, and by dawn main street was clear, down to pavement.Money and incentive counts, but so do conditions.
