You know what they do in my part of the world when it snows? They dump gravel on the roads.
When I lived in Raleigh, the most annoying thing of all was the reaction of northerners to snow. Most southern municipalities have it right, just hunker down for a day and it will pass, rather than a massive investment in salt and plows that will get used once a year, if that.
But it never failed, every time it snowed all the New Yorkers would squawk ad nausea about how the incompetent city couldn't keep the roads clear.
