A plow, now!

Andy Woodruff at Bostonography:

The city of Boston set up a web map that tracked the live location of snow plows and their ground covered, which would be excellent for a summary map, but in an excessive triumph the site was overloaded and had to be shut down because the demand was interfering with the city’s ability to track plows itself.

We live in the future. Almost—I’m hoping the future has more server capacity.
