Track Snow Plows To Plot Your Way Home TonightS

PlowNYC has issued a "snow alert" and activated this tracking site to give citizens an idea of when they can expect their streets to be cleared.

Whether you're too stubborn to swap your summer tires or you just don't want to get stuck behind a salt spreader, knowing where the plows are can be hugely helpful getting around when the snow comes down.

A few seconds of Googling revealed Chicago and the State of Virginia had similar sites in place. If you live in a reasonably populated area, I'll bet your city has a site too— share the link in comments!
