We have been posting updates on our Facebook page about the snow and we have noticed a trend in some of those comments. Many of you said Monday that Spokane is falling down on the job when it comes to plowing – and that other places where you have lived or visited do it better.Step 2: Ask people who know.
So we called eight cities that are similar in size to Spokane and have snow each year. We wanted to know how their snow removal process compared to ours here in Spokane. About half of them got back to us and here is what we learned.Step 3: Constants and variables.

The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
