A Real Minnesota Winter?

This is an unusual amount of snow to be piled up by our mailbox in December; we probably haven't had this much snow over the course of a whole winter in some recent years. Of course, this heap is somewhat misleading, since we live on a circle. The plow has to clear the whole circle, so it deposits far more snow at the curb than it does when just going along a normal road. This morning's inch or so of snow turned into about eight inches in the driveway.

I wonder what would happen if the cities, townships, and counties decided that snow plowing was no longer a local government responsibility. I think that would be a fascinating experiment in tax saving, privatization, entrepreneurship, and (perhaps) chaos. Fun!
