LET IT SNOW!!! thumbs down for the Mayor

A cold front that hit Turkey on Wednesday brought heavy snowfall that paralyzed traffic and shut down schools in the capital Ankara while disrupting road and air travel in other cities..
   Residents blamed the Ankara Municipality for not taking the necessary precautions, causing   Mayor Melih Gökçek to release statements defending the municipality, and joking that at least the city’s children get to enjoy a break from school to play in the snow. Some took to Twitter to criticize Gökçek for not taking action before the storm hit. “How can I convince you that we have salted the roads? Maybe you should lick the roads,” the mayor wrote in reply on the social-networking website. (!!!!!)
