the snow fence

Snow fences were put in place quite awhile ago. They continue to stand at the ready for a major snowstorm to hit.

The weather is cyclical and for the past number of years there hasn't been much snow to speak of. Eight years ago or so it would have been a different story, as it seemed every week we were digging out from a major hit.

Snow fences are erected in strategic positions next to roadways, almost always running north-south. The snow fence captures snow and slows down the blowing and drifting effect on the highway.

I'm hoping that you don't need them, though a little bit of snow might be nice.
