Here are two examples of everyone’s favorite heavy equipment last week. These two were parked off Seventh Street in Sequim and are probably private contractors who cleared local parking lots.
The City of Sequim reports that it used 100 cubic yards of sand and 15 tons of salt clearing public roads during three days of storms last week. Plowers worked 12-hour shifts, putting in 324 hours. Many of us live on or near county roads which are the responsibility of Clallam County Public Works which dispatches its own army of plows. Gotta love ’em.
