Holy cow!

The streets in my neighborhood got swept today for the first time since October.

Now, what will i kvetch about tomorrow?

UPDATE: Thank goodness, only some of the streets in my 'hood got swept today. Pictures of the rest tomorrow, assuming the sun comes up and the trucks don't come by.



  • Is Obama coming to town?

  • He can come over every week, if that's what it takes.

    I swear i was going to blog about this tomorrow.

    By the way, when i've talked to the street sweeper drivers, they tell me there's no schedule for sweeping the neighborhoods, they just get out when they can. (I'd like to know, so that i don't leave my car in the street when they do happen to show up.) Ask someone at City Hall, though, and they'll tell you there's a schedule, but they just don't have it handy right then.

  • Maybe it was just a one-time deal to make up for the barking dogs, syringes in the trash, etc. :D

  • They put syringes in your trash? That's very nice of them! They just throw their drug and sex paraphernalia along the road over here.

  • oooooooooh I've been wondering where they've been. We've got all kinds of leaves in the streets right now...which means come March we'll have all kinds of flooding.

    Want to send them down Roxboro next time you see them?

  • I've wondered about the street sweeping schedule myself lately. Back in mid-December, I raked and bagged all the leaves from the curb around my property only to see the curb full of leaves again after a big rain.

    When it rained hard this past Wednesday, I watched from my front door as a river of leaves went down the street and right into the storm drain. That can't be good for the sewer system. They really need to out in full force with the street sweepers in mid December when the trees have finished dropping their leaves.

  • The syringe showed up in the recycling bin one day in December of 2007. It was the same day the police chased a wanted gunman out of a house down the street from me and through the neighborhood.

    We assume that the two events were connected, but obviously can't prove anything. I blogged about it at the time here.

    Some of my trees have not yet dropped all their leaves.
