Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself!
At least Mayor Bloomberg is proud of himself. In a press release he said the city’s response to the snow this morning showed it had fixed the problems that plagued the much griped about handling of the Dec. 26 blizzard. Arguably, this most recent snow was not as bad as last month’s, but the official record indicated 9.1 inches in Central Park. It was worse in other parts of the city, but I swear the BQE never looked that bad from where I was looking on my buddy’s fire escape. Snowpacalypse 2010 reached upwards of 20 inches in some areas, but I gues we shouldn’t belittle the city’s efforts. According to WNYC:
The mayor vowed a faster and more efficient response to the storm this time. There were 106 private contractors helping to clear the city’s tertiary street and 1,000 laborers who cleared bus stops and cross walks. ”Our goal for this storm was not merely to get back to business as usual,” Bloomberg said. “Our goal was to deploy a more effective snow response operation than ever, more aggressive and more accountable, based on the lessons that we learned in the last storm and that’s what we’ve done.”
Thanks, Mike. That just means we had to go to work today. Winter is far from over, but im already tired of it. Check this vid from last month:
