Potholes Aren't the Only Remnants of Arctic Paralysis '08


Mayor Nickels just announced that the city will reverse its policy and use salt in future snowstorms. Great, but what about the fact that, presumably as a result of the storm just passed, many major roads -- the Alaskan Way Viaduct and West Seattle Bridge, to name but two -- now have virtually invisible lane delineation, making sideswipes a far more probable threat. Mark my words: one helluva re-striping process is soon to rear its car-clogging reflective cones. And that's not even taking pothole proliferation into account.
