Streets Commish Deems Cleanup A Success
Philadelphia Streets Commissioner Clarena Tolson called into Good Day this morning to give us all an update on Philadelphia’s snowstorm clean-up.
Tolson told Mike & Sheinelle, “Things are going so very, very well.”
She went on to add that she has all but 100 of the 2,575 miles of roads plowed “at least one time.”
Our ground crews and SKYFOX captured hundreds of images of people, cars, and even SEPTA buses sliding and stuck right in the middle of the streets.
The Commissioner blames the storm conditions (“It came out of nowhere”) and the fact that hard-packed snow is very hard to remove and this storm, in particular, was “different.”
In the land of illusions and disconnect, the people in charge think they are really doing a good job. Today more than twenty four hours after a major snowstorm (one that was predicted in advance) a lone snow plow finally made a sad, irrelevant pass down our street. Mind you the plow did very little since the snow covering our street has already packed down and turned into a solid three inches of ice. But according to our vaunted streets commissioner everything is just swell.
The streets in our area are bigger than most parts of the city and therefore easier to plow. So today the Oberfrau and Peach decided to break the cabin fever with a trip to the local mall. They reported that the local streets were still horrendous, even the big streets. What’s more is this section of the city typically pays a large portion of the taxes that go into city coffers. Yet as usual the services we get are nearly non-existent.
No wonder. In today’s world all you have to do is declare yourself a success and it is so…
