No one is asking anyone to give blood or take "speed" to stay awake. Once again, the original question was "How well did our town do?" The answer is "poorly". All of these rebuttals just support that by saying "Yeah, they did a crappy job, but their garage is old, and they would have to take drugs, and there was a ton of snow, and blah blah blah..."
The sidewalks are still awful in places and it is Thursday. It's not about new buildings, or hours, or feet of snow, or meth. It's about how good the roads and sidewalks are, and they have been miserable all week. View Comment
keepitsimple, don't get your panties in a wad... no one made any comments about this being a political issue. The question was about whether or not Northbridge did a good job. They had to cancel school again today for lack of plowed sidewalks... did surrounding towns have to do that? Have you driven around to see what the roads are like here in town vs. the surrounding towns?
In my opinion, our town always used to be right on top of road cleaning issues. As of late, I think they have fallen short. I won't speculate on why, but the answer to the original question is "not so well."
A lot of snow, yes. But when the ban lifted, I drove to several meetings around the state, and in comparison, Northbridge roads were terrible. Other towns' roads were dry and clear to the shoulders, whereas ours still had 6-8 inches of snow. In some places, it appeared that there was no removal done whatsoever. I understand that it was a giant snow storm, and until I went to see other towns around us and how well they did, I was prepared to say we did as good a job as any other town. After I drove around, I was not convinced. View Comment
