Blacksburg Mayor Discusses Recent Snowfall recently posted a letter written by Blacksburg Mayor Ron Rordam concerning the recent snowfall we had in the middle of December.  The full text is here – I thought these stats were interesting …

  • 13″ inches of snowfall
  • 12 plow trucks
  • 1300 staff hours
  • 550,000 lbs of salt
  • 400 gallons of liquid calcium
  • 546,000 lbs of stone

Amazing numbers, I think.  I wonder how many gallons of snow melt will add to our local water table.
