One of the BobCat vehicles of our Fairbanks city snow&ice clearance
department. Underpaid and underappreciated workers sitting at the
controls, surrounded by diesel fumes and with only that cage of glass to
insulate from however cold it happens to be outside.
These are the smaller vehicles that clear the sidewalks across our university. Caught
this one on my way out to head to the store, amidst the still-falling
snow. We'd just gotten 8 inches overnight, so they began clearing and
plowing at 4 in the morning.
