I just read Gary Wheeldon’s letter to the editor (Dec. 27) regarding snowplowing or the lack of it during the Christmas holiday. I couldn’t agree with him more.
We drove to my daughter’s house for Christmas, and Madison had not been plowed in some time, and since we do not have a four-wheel drive it was a challenge to keep the car from going off the road.
We count on the snowplows to help dig us out and them taking Christmas off is like a hospital emergency room worker saying I want the day off. This is their job, and they should be doing it.
We live just south of Painted Hills Golf Course in a gated community. We pay to have our community plowed so we can get out but now Madison Road is so bad we cannot take a chance on getting through.
We have a dear friend that just passed away. I had to call the family and explain to them that we would not be attending the memorial service as we were concerned about getting out and then back home.
Someone needs to give Spokane County commissioners a wake-up call or vote them out of office in the next election.
