From the corner booth...

So much for all that wonderful clearing of the snow on Trapelo Road in Belmont. It turns out that the current replacement of sewer pipes was continuing and they were going to dig out large holes in the middle of the road for the foreseeable future. If they didn't clear out the snow on the sides of the road, there would have been no room for cars to pass through; they had to clear out the snow. Businesses on the big streets everywhere should be up in arms for being considered less of a priority.

My town still has a partial parking ban in place, with parking allowed only on the odd-numbered side. What this means in the residential side streets is that there's reallly only *one* lane for traffic in both lanes. People park in the lane on the odd-numbered side because they're allowed to and that blocks the road on the odd-numbered side. What they should do is haul away the snow on the odd-numbered side so people won't block the road if they need to park.

See you on the dance floor.
