We're in the thick of winter here in Coshocton, Ohio. The cold weather started early and, with the exception of New Year's Day (60 degrees!), temps have pretty much stayed frigid since before Thanksgiving. It was a long "winter" even before winter officially started.
And with winter comes snow. And with snow comes snow plowing. At MMS, it's critical to keep taxiways and ramp areas clear so aircraft can be moved between hangars and other airplanes can taxi up to our facility should they need maintenance. It's also important for the parking lot and entrance area to be cleared facilitating our staff's arrival to start the work day.
Dave Shelly is our Facilities Manager and it's his responsibility to make sure everything's plowed. And after it's snowed all day and all night, like it has the past 24 hours, the plowing needs to start rather early.
