Here in New York City, all sane people were asked to stay off the roads thanks to the blizzard, and all lunatics will be doing somewhat the opposite of that. But the trains had fewer problems, despite a few closed stations. That’s because rail roads have enormous snow plows like this one.
The massive monstrosity is what’s known as a Jordan Spreader, and as Wired notes, it weighs 160,000 pounds, it’s up to 12 feet wide, and can take down a 16-foot snow drift.
But I just like watching it do its thing. It’s mesmerizing.
