Cross-posted from streets.mn: Detritus of Winter
Detritus of Winter
Instead we are just beginning to enjoy the year in May, here in the northland, and we still see the detritus of Winter. In this case, all of the remnants of snow piles that were placed on sidewalks by snowplows so that the streets would be cleared for motor vehicles. This flotsam and jetsam of the road is transferred to sidewalks, and ultimately to the river.
A few more winters and East River Road and Franklin Avenue will cease to be, pining for the Fjords, being returned by nature and Mr. Plow to its indigenous state.
Even the massive rainstorms of the past week are insufficient to remove this rubble. At least it adds traction.
