GM heard a rumor that the mayor and Jack Evans were out and about Georgetown watching over a new strategy for side-street clearance. He rushed down to Cambridge St. with his trusty Nikon and snapped a photo of the pair.
The new strategy involves driving a Bobcat (actually this was technically a Mustang) with a crew of shovelers. And it’s pretty effective:
Buuuuuuuut, how’s R St.?
Not so great. (The cab was stuck, by the way).
GM asked the mayor whether R St. was on the menu for the bobcat/mustang. He said he thought the big trucks could fit on R St.
You don’t say…
It’s nice that they’ve come up with a strategy for the side streets, but it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to have Avon Place pristine while R St. is still a single lane mess. (As of 9:00 this morning, R St. has still not been plowed).
But all things considered, GM would prefer to cut the mayor and DDOT a little slack. It was a once-in-a-century snowstorm. If it takes us a week or so to get back to some sense of normalcy, then I’d say that’s not so bad.
What do you think?
