Snow Trapped ~ Incompetent Cleanup Services...

While I'm personally pretty disgusted by the gross incompetence with which snow cleanup happens in Boston-Cambridge, my beef pales in comparison with that of the elderly, the infirm, and especially the classically disabled whose passage is literally blocked by the underperforming "service providers" who can't even clean up and un-block a crosswalk with any degree of competence. Billy Baker points this out in his Globe piece today Trapped by walls of white. I've witnessed this happening a dozen times in just this season. And it's not as if Massachusetts has never been hit by snow before and preparation is impossible and "best practices" are unknowable. No, we really are talking about massive civic stupidity.
