Snow Removal Much?

57th_street_burying_cab.jpgIs it just me, or has the snow removal process been noticeably lacking in the first big storm to hit New York this winter? Walking around outside is a miserable experience, so much so that after my V-day meal the other night, we were reluctant to walk 3 short West Village blocks to Magnolia Bakery (of course, we came around and was all over those cupcakes like flies on shit)! But, after a good 35-40 hours of post-storm city life, you would think that the streets of NY would be mostly clean and traversable. But, the sidewalks and streets are covered with that nasty brown snow/dirt slurry that looks like rotten cookie dough.

My personal view of snow is that in the dead of summer, it is all I want to see. Once late fall and early winter hit, I am anxiously awaiting the first few flakes. When the initial flurries finally arrive, I am euphoric. 10 minutes later, I am suicidal. And once the snow becomes “ripe,” I am just angry and resentful of that bitch Mother Nature.

    Not only that Noah, alternate side parking was still in effect yesterday and today – Bloomie made it so! He said that there isn’t too much snow on the ground so there’s no need to bitch about it.

    I think they are not well prepared for this one at all. Too lazy and a lot of fat body in the city agencies
