Bureaucratic Idiocy of the Day

We wouldn't want to wear out the snow plows!

When it snows at beach, use a plow

MYRTLE BEACH — It doesn't snow much in Myrtle Beach and the federal government has warned the local airport not to use its snow plows until it does.

The Federal Aviation Administration recently warned the Myrtle Beach International Airport that a dump truck, two pickups, snow plows and other equipment the agency provided two years ago must be used for clearing snow.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports the airport had told the FAA it was using the vehicles for other jobs, such as general maintenance.

But the FAA told the airport that snow removal equipment must only be used for snow removal. But the FAA did say that a sweeper, included in the other equipment, could be used to clear airport grounds.
