Did I miss your coverage of the girls Tuesday night basketball games? I saw boys.
Anyone else peeved that the city DPW never finished picking up leaves this Fall? They came down my street once, before all leaves fell. Then we got all leaves raked into street, and they never came, although when I called, they said they would be on my street a week ago. Now, to top it off, today, after a major snowstorm last night, two parking lots I went to today were never plowed. Not one, but two. TOTALLY UNPLOWED. NOT EVEN ONCE! Now a smart person would go out and do the plowing BEFORE all the cars try to park in these lots, but this DPW apparently didn’t think to do this. Insane!
