Dear Department of Transportation: A Thank You letter

Dear Pennsylvania Department of Transportation,

Thank you for the adventure on the roads this morning. It was exciting, to say the least. I appreciate your willingness to make my morning fun by providing me with a ski trip. Really, though, I prefer to ski on foot, NOT in my car.

I understand what a complete pain it would be to clear the roads before the majority of us wake up. Yes, there may be 2 hour delays at all the school districts, but keep in mind that the majority of the drivers have to be at work on time, and have places to be. They don't have the luxury of 2 hour delays. Instead of catering to just the school bus drivers, perhaps you should cater to every resident that has to drive on your roads?

Four wheeling on a frozen tundra, where you can't distinguish road from land, is not my idea of fun. I don't appreciate the fact that you put many lives in danger every single day, by not doing your job. Everybody has a job to do, and obviously you aren't doing an adequate one.

The fact that you were able to clear 8 inches of snow of the roads rather quickly, but are unable to clear off 2 inches, just proves that you are lazy. I guess you can start 2 hours later, as well, when there are 2 hour delays from school.

Thank you, PennDot, for putting our lives in danger today. I now understand why your roads are ranked as the second worst in the ENTIRE country. Today proved that to me.

Sincerely,

Angry mom of two

P.S. To anyone who is thinking of moving to Pennsylvania: Don't do it!
