I just wanted to make a comment about the city snow plowing this year on Behrends Avenue. I have lived on Behrends for 15 years and this is the best job I have ever seen them do.
This year the crew is plowing out driveways on both sides of the street. In the past, wet heavy snow had be plowed from the south side of the street to the north side, blocking off all driveways on the north side. This sometimes frozen, heavy mass of snow and ice could take days to shovel out by the homeowner on the north side. This year the smaller plow trucks are coming back and plowing the snow out of the north driveways after the initial plowing.
The city crew is out there at this very moment removing the snow from the street. Behrends, like many others, is a very narrow street, essentially one-way traffic, so it can be dangerous to motorists and pedestrians in the wintertime. Many fender-benders happen here every winter. I would like to compliment the whole city crew for making our roads safer and Behrends Avenue a more pleasant place to live. They have done the job cheerfully and very efficiently. It is much appreciated by my family.
DRIVE SAFELY and have a merry Christmas and happy New Year.
