|02:59 am - in which we ask the burning questions|
...why the hell is there a bulldozer pushing clumps of snow down the street outside at 3 AM, and why is its backup beeping louder than a car horn?
Let's hear it for the City of Somerville.

I'm guessing they're preparing for Thursday's storm-of-the-century-until-the-next-one-comes snowstorm.

and people wonder why I run to Salem whenever it snows.
Where in Somerville do you live? We didn't get any bulldozers. Ever. I feel so deprived.

Monday morning, bulldozers were blocking off Broadway just south of 16, moving snow. Made my morning commute lovely.
my faith in the Somerville DPW is non-existant at this point.
So that's what those really loud noises were. I was too sleepy to go check.
I actually complained to the city the other day about the fact that the snow-emergency sides of the streets (you know, the ones that we need to move our cars from during a snow emergency, so they can plow?) hadn't really been plowed, and that ironically, the only available parking places were on the non-snow-emergency sides of the streets, where the cars had been parked. I wonder if I had any effect on this action...but I swear, I never said, "And oh, by the way, could you attempt to fix this at 3am, waking up me and all of my neighbors? Because that would be swell."
