I hope they don't wait until everyone has their property shoveled out to decide to plow the snow back on everyone's property.

I understand Public Works will be working on Saturday. That's good I guess because I haven't seen a plow truck all day. I guess they're waiting to collect OT. So be ready to get plowed in tomorrow after all our hard work today.
