From Mr. Angry:
Saturday night. 10PM. I leave my house and snow is falling. The weatherman predicted a small snow shower that wouldn’t be anything to worry about, so I’m not surprised. This snow turns to a light rain and ends quickly.
Nope, you’re not seeing things. That is a fully loaded snowplow/road salter. It is 4AM and this guy has been sitting in the cab of his truck reading a paper with the engine idling all night. And it’s not just him - there are dozens of these guys parked all over the city. So far as I could figure, some idiot called these guys into work for snow removal and they all got to do an 8 hour shift of reading and wasting fuel clocking double overtime and half out of our pockets.
Where is the logic, Bloomberg? Shutting down fire houses at night and replacing them with snow removal for a storm that never existed?
