Good that this is being done, but during the morning rush? Hmmmm. Looking forward to that.

I really think that the effort is great, and I completely understand how difficult it is to keep up with all of the snow and ice. There are other issues at hand though. My street was scheduled for snow removal last Monday. I take the train to work and had nowhere to move my car to. Finally, I was lucky enough to have a friend let me use her parking space. When I came home the next evening my street wasn't even touched. The piles of snow were still there and the ice was as slick as ever. Another issue are the sidewalks - especially the ones by the high school. They are just caked with ice. Living in a town where most people walk, I would assume that the sidewalks would also be a priority as they are extremely dangerous.
