Very good. Interesting. Narration was very informative as to what they were doing and how and why. Only thing wrong, and very minor at that, was the narrator kept referring to a spreader as a flanger.

The railroad in the video refers to it as a flanger it is not a spreader.

Yes, I noticed that when I watched this video again a week or so ago. Just missed it the first time, I guess.

Very well done. Most of the video is shot from the car right beind the spreader so you can watch the plowing of the snow. or from the front of the plow.

If I needed a reminder why I moved south 30+ years ago, this program did it. I rated the disc as slightly overpriced as it is a DVD-R. That said, the unique subject matter makes it worth having. The power plant footage was quite interesting and I wish there had been more. Definitely something different!
