Look! Pavement!

Got bless the City of Somerville: they've really been attacking the snow with gusto recently. Today was the turn of our neighborhood, and I can see from the window of my office that they are not doing this by half measures: a big-ass backhoe clearing the mass of snow, *two* Bobcats for cleanup (so that one can push the snow into the other), and a convoy of dump trucks to haul it away. The mountains on our side of the street are going away quickly.

The perpetual state of snow emergency, and its rule of No Parking On the Even Side of the Street, has been a mild headache, but it's nice to get some payoff...
