While some of the incomplete plowing on the South Side probably resulted from the hard pack that accumulates almost immediately in places where people are the workers and not the bosses, it was pretty lame compared to how many itsy bitsy East Side streets were already clear and dry tonight. The South Side probably sees more traffic in a day than those neighborhoods see in a month. I hope those East Side folks are contributing as much to the local economy to justify their clean streets.
Regardless, kudos to all the people in Elmwood who did their part and kept the streets clear for the plows. I had a welling of South Side pride, with all but the abandoned house (owner went to prison for trying to have his wife killed) having clear sidewalks. This was a goodly amount of snow to move.
The biggest plus was being able to chat with the counter staff on what normally would have been a crazy-packed Sunday at the Liberty Elm.
