walt jones 2 months ago on No fire, water restrictions in short-term forecast

Just because no restrictions were implemented doesn't mean homeowners and resort companies need their sprinklers on excessively, meaning Steamboat Resorts Properties specifically, You can still practice some conservation. And when it rains like it did over the weekend kind of pointless to keep pumping more water into the yards. Good grief.

A suggestion would be to not keep bringing more groups in on Fri/Sat nights. The town is historically maxed out then. Mon-Thur would be a valuable time to bring in group business.

Just a shot that Jay Gallagher may read this....Jay do you plan on putting watering restriction schedule in place this year? I know there is a deep snow pack versus last year but still I dont think that means all these homes and management companies should abuse the system.

Ironically there have been more long term outages and temporary service interruptions on the display screen since the digital upgrade they did in the valley. Newer isn't always better. Someone higher up in Comcast must be losing their job by now.

Steve- we could use rain at this point not really 2-3 inches of snow every few days. If I recall 3 years ago the spring was nice and rainy.

Not sure Comcast every seems to care about negative publicity thru the years. The advertise so much and a fortune 500 company they can withstand the negativity. If Deb H thinks she can find recourse in a comcast contract good luck with that. And Walter comparing Internet/TV outage no different than an electric outage good grief!

walt jones 6 months, 2 weeks ago on During busy snow year, city of Steamboat's snow removal fleet asks for patience, cooperation

Well I have a different opinion on the plowing this year. The State and County are doing a good job I agree with that. However the City is by far worse than I have seen in recent memory. Having lived in the Valley 40 years and on the same street over 20 the city plow crew are newer than years past and don't get around to the mountain area until far later inthe day. More so the amount of scoria used this year is a 1/4 of what I have seen before and I have seen more cars slid into ditches after the plow went by due to minimal scoria laid down after and darn right scary slick once the motor grater passes and no scoria at all is down. If they expect "patience" from us then we should expect better quality and product when they do plow.
