You know what's needed to effectively and quickly remove this kind of snow after this kind of snowstorm? An Oshkosh H-series High-Speed Snow Blower. Those are the machines you're seeing out on I-95 that are chewing through the snow and ice, blowing 5,000 tons of snow an hour. And even those machines, some of which were called in by CT DOT on the Friday before the storm, arriving here from around the country by Saturday, couldn't keep up with it. That's why they're still working on it. I believe they cost somewhere north of $450,000 depending on the options. I'm not sure taxpayers in Madison are ready to pay that, even after this storm.

Actually, they went for $350,000 to $500,000 in 2005, so I'm guessing they go for a little more now ... http://www.caranddriver.com/features/oshkosh-h-series-high-speed-snow-blower-driving-impressions-and-specs-page-2. I want one for my birthday next year.

So, lets sell Constitution Park, buy one of these and lower our taxes. Hey, we could even develop the land and lower our taxes even more!!!
