    This is great, but don’t the trucks have a reverse gear?

    Way to go Ingleside Terrace! REPRESENT!!!

    I’ll bet none of these people shoveling threw snowballs at the trucks….

    Just Sayin’

    • And I doubt they are using my stolen shovel. If I find the kid who has it, he will also be introduced to my baseball bat (here, I would insert a smiley face, but I don’t believe in them, so I won’t)

      • wow

        tough guy

      • Neener

        why do you think a kid stole it? I’m sure it was the homeless man who my black neighbor $10 to shovel her steps and then, in full earshot, offered to shovel mine for $30.

    @Ah, I’ve never seen a plow with a blade on its rear, so reverse probably wouldn’t have gotten them anywhere.

    • ah

      If they were plowing, why would it be such a problem? That is, shouldn’t they have already removed the snow behind them?

      • Ingleside Terrace

        When the first plow came through, he (or she) wasn’t plowing…I think they were throwing salt down. That part of Ingleside has just enough grade to it to make it tough to get up the hill.

    I live on Newton, just a block over from Ingleside. We’ve got a nursing home on the block and several times over the last few days trucks have gotten stuck trying to deliver supplies.
    I’m hoping that once the plows got out (and up that hill), they made it around the block!

    What are these “snow plows” that you speak of? I have not seen such a thing.

  • DC_Chica

    Shouldn’t all snow plows and tow trucks just stay away from residential streets that haven’t been plowed at this point? I just spent the last 3 hours watching a city salt truck/plow be unstuck from the street in front of my apt in MtP (on Kilbourne). That is 3 hours involving two city trucks/plows and several city employees that could have been spent plowing/salting major streets.

  • Inglesider

    Believe it or not — and this is crazy — one of the drivers said they weren’t allowed to put their plows down, because “It damages the street.”

    Kind of ironic that all week we’ve been waiting for a plow, only to have the street cleared by residents!
