Making A Show For The Masses
Here's a sanitation truck with its plow bucket at the ready to scoop up any and all snow. But - there is no snow ... yet. Another huge storm (they keep telling us it's "huge" on the weather reports) is due to hit late Tuesday night. But this and other trucks were out and about EARLY as an apparent display of readiness after the abysmal response to the Christmas Weekend Blizzard that saw work and rescue vehicles, cop cars and city buses stuck and abandoned in the snow because many streets weren't plowed for days. One sanitation department higher-up lost his job, but many others in New York City's "front office" escaped with only of the wrath of the politicians and citizens as their punishment ... so far.
