Merchants Ask For Plows- Get Umbrellas

Speaking of bad weather causing trouble in Seattle (see below), some west side merchants are asking to have their roads plowed- and getting umbrellas instead. Some business owners are upset that thousands of dollars are being spent on a campaign to raise awareness of pedestrians. They feel that money should go toward snow removal efforts instead. King 5 News has the story. Watch the video then let me know if you think the business owners have a point or if they're comparing apples to oranges.
