…We are doing all possible with the resources at hand. Right now, Mother Nature giving a few sunny, non-freezing days would be the most helpful thing possible.
On January 1, 2011 Miss Heather writes (on the Community Board 1 Yahoo Group):
Today I saw a tractor cleaning up the sidewalk in front of Jerzy Popieluszko Square and a group of sullen Parks employees with a truck equipped with a plow at McGolrick Park. One employee was complaining on her cell phone that it was cold. Perhaps when our Parks advocate(s) are done pontificating/congratulating themselves and/or making excuses they could see fit to send these people/equipment my direction?
It would appear that Mother Nature not only gave us a few days of mercifully temperate weather but also a snow plow. Thank you, Mother Nature!
