Apparently snow ploys can handle a couple feet of snow in the middle of a blizzard, but start throwing snowballs at it, and game over.
Two Virginia College students are facing 1 to 5 years in prison if convicted of pelting a city snow plow and an unmarkerd police car with snowballs. This felony snowball assault occured this past Saturday during the unusual blizzard conditions recently plaguing the Mid-Atlantic.
Snowmageddon, I believe Obama called it. So much for global warming when Virginia has been pounded harder than New Hampshire this winter season…
Police report that the two students, Charles Gill and Ryan Knight first began to playful launch snowballs at the oncoming city snow plow. The plow driver then called the police, who soon arrived on the scene of the snowy onslaught in an unmarked police car. The snowballs continued to fly hitting the police car too, until the assailants were apprehended and charged with felony counts of throwing objects at occupied vehicles.
It looks like more snowballs may fly later this week, as another freak snow storm is about to dump anther foot or two on the area. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…
Be Safe, Be Prepared, Watch out for snowballs.
