Spokane hasn't had much of a chance to show off its new snow plan this winter thanks to mild temperatures. It has, however, earned props for its snow plow Web site.

Over the past couple of rough winters, Spokane created an online interactive map so residents can check which streets have been plowed during storms. That effort earned the No. 1 rank on the list of the "10 best cities for tracking snow removal online" by OhMyGov, a Web site that writes about government issues.
