New Snow Plow!

There are plenty of things not to like about Minnesota in the winter, but one thing you do have to admit is that we are pretty darn good at snow removal. Like Obama chiding Washington D.C. for closing down with less than an inch of snow on the ground, Minnesotans enjoy feeling more productive than the rest of the country when it comes to snowstorms.
Apparently we have a new tool in our arsenal when it comes to clearing the interstate, its called a Tow Plow.

The plow operates like a windshield wiper blade swinging across two lanes of traffic behind the truck. Startribune hasn't laid off all its fancy graphic designers yet, so they made a nifty Flashplayer graphic of how it works..
