  • city snow plow stuck in the snow from about 9am until 4:30
    This is just too perfect...The city snowplow that came down my block today got stuck half way down the block and sat there spinning its wheels until 7.5 hours later, when a sanitation tow truck came and gave it a nudge. Now traffic can theoretically drive down the block--except that it's still un-plowed.
