seems like a great suggestion (maybe you can liaise with essingen to strengthen the story)

Must say that this thread seems like a very ignorant one to me - one which does not address the vast areas Swedish snow plows have to clear, the vast expense in the equipment and labor, the particular troubles in doing so when there is so much traffic using the roads, clearing the increasingly buildup as the snowing continues, the need to work then early in the morning in order not to cause bigger conjestion, not to do anymore than is necessary because of the expense, etc.

In my long experience, the Swedes get at least an A-, the Americans a C-, and the Brits a definite failing mark.

I shall never forget my 20-year experience in Princeton, MA where I had to clear not only my own driveway but part of the town road it connected to because its official ones did not get round to doing so until they had done the rewarding private ones - what usually took a day or two. laugh.gif

I am much more concerned over the overuse of the word 'plow' when the English version is plough. Americans excused.

The bastardised English language version was what I was given and it will have to stay.

It is OK sometimes to complain and get the steam out (and remain healthy smile.gif), but then one should admit that 'that' is what he/she is doing. Claiming that he is writing this lenthy post because as a responsible citizen he doesn't want to see wastage of resources and tax payers money etc etc is not correct at-all.
