What Snow Clean Up

Can't Dig Out of This

Can’t Dig Out of This

Hello World,
As you can see from the pictures, Brooklyn is still covered under snow. Brooklyn has been hardest hit and there is clearly a preference given to Manhattan. For three days no plow came on my street. When it came yesterday around noon, it just scraped the top so there is still about 12inches of snow left on the street. None of the vehicles can dig out because there is no place to put the snow and no place to go. Walking is like navigating an obstacle course. Slipping and sliding is the order of the day even with good snow boots. The pictures were taken on my way to the subway station. People were walking in the middle of the streets and cars were crawling at about 5 miles per hour so as not to hit anyone. Enough is enough. The snow is blinding and people are so fed up they are not even making snowmen. As I am writing this, the Department of Sanitation (DOS) Commissioner is on the street saying basically that the DOS is doing their best in getting the streets plowed and the snow removed. As per Commissioner Doherty, the DOS has 2235 trucks in their fleet. It was reported that only 1700 trucks were out with plows on them. The Commissioner said there were more. The New York Times said the DOS workers were on a go slow which explains the snowy mess on the streets of Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Everybody is blaming the storm, but it seemed that the city was just not ready. If you are coming to New York City for the New Year’s Eve celebration, you can come. Manhattan is really cleaned up and the temperature will be great. Let’s hope we can get from Brooklyn to join the party.
