The city of Juneau has taken responsibility for plowing in Douglas this year, and already I can see the wondrous results.
Their "50 percent speed" plowing leaves a wonderful berm on one side of the street. Digging a vehicle out from behind this is an excellent cardiovascular workout and also helps build muscle tone. While the company contracted to plow last year did their best to minimize the wall for those of us with off-street parking, kudos to the city for giving half the residents of Douglas a health benefit.
I look forward to the next 50 percent speed plowing event with great eagerness, as do my neighbors. We'll be there with shovels ready.
Thanks again for doing a half-fast job.
