fun with snow plows

to continue in my trend of having people over to watch movies, last night sofi came to watch bottle rocket. this in and of itself doesn’t make for a good story, but the drive home was an adventure. could someone please explain to me why on earth snow plows were plowing snow off the sides of the road/sidewalks and pushing it into the middle of the road, thus creating a couple foot high ridge separating the lanes? i’d never seen anything like it before: as sofi described it, there was “less snow REMOVAL than snow REDISTRIBUTION”. because the ridge was so high i couldn’t drive through it, and unfortunately someone had parked illegally on the side of johnson street, thus effectively blocking me in. it didn’t help that a car in front of us drove through a red light, and a guy walked across the road in front of us against a red light. presumably there was some complex system underway involving multiple snow removal vehicles unseen to my eye. or else it was just a make work project.

    i was walking to the end of the road to my bus the other day, listening to my discman, so i didn’t hear a snowplow coming up from behind. but i sure heard the three loud horn blasts.

    i wasn’t even listening to it loud. i was listening the amazing burned electric soft parade cd though. the one that i don’t know the track listing to, or even the name of the cd. yeah, that one.
