A Norwalk photo #134

(Paul Cantor)

NORWALK, Conn. – This photo was taken Sunday on Fillow Street, across from Oak Hills Park, according to Paul Cantor, who said, “Snow is not the only thing that gets plowed up by Norwalk’s snow plowers after a snowstorm.”

What a mess! I think the plow drivers can’t always see where the curbs are and overshoot. DPW repaired the grassy area by our curb several years ago from snow plowing damage, and they will no doubt do the same on Fillow Street.

Whom ever is driving the plows needs glasses. They are awful. I could do better even after a bottle of scotch and blindfolded.

Unfair Nancy that you post this nonsense from Paul Cantor. These guys work hard in a storm. Maybe the driver slipped on ice and hit some grass. They will fix it. No need to attack them

If you have ever driven a plow truck you’d understand that it can be very difficult to see where you are going at times. From the defroster and heater running full blast to blinding snow to the windshield wipers iced up and not being able to figure out where the road actuality is.

Mitch, challenge accepted. Next big snow storm. Meet at Tysen’s garage, I’ll bring a truck with the 9 foot plow. We’ll go plow one of my private roads, after plowing at 4am for 6 hours. Heat at 90, windows up, iced up wipers with snow coming down at 2 inches an hour with no markers or street lights to know where the curds are.

Tysen is correct. Give the hard worker guys a break. Offer the drivers some hot chocolate and snacks.

I think it was Mayor O’Connor who was the last mayor that would take time to go down to the DPW garage and ride with the plow drivers. Ya won’t see todays mayor or chief of a paycheck do that.

Give these guys a break, they have parked cars they go around, people throwing snow in the roads they already plowed. If this bothers you so much, spend 10-20 dollars and put flashers up along the road. Complaints with no solutions.
