Get That Car Moving, People ...

It's snowing, and the local Police Department called everyone in my town's database to say "Move your vehicles off our streets so we can plow away the snow, or we're towing and impounding your cars. And when you're shoveling, don't throw any snow in the street either, or you'll receive a $250 fine. Thank you, and have a nice day."

Such a heart-warming and Christmas-y feeling ... I was moved.

Zed, your story has melted my heart. The news here reports 20 inches expected in your area. Take care, and build tall snowmen!

Yup localities are downright charitable when it comes down to snow removal. It's too bad they don't let you choose where they tow your car to. Then you could just load up your car and let them tow you through the bad weather. (Could you drop this car off at the impound lot in Delaware? Thanks!)

I'm sure your cried some on reading the bittersweet story, Sans.

We DID have 20 inches of snow, and though several of us went down to build snowmen, we could only walk a few feet. That snow was heavy and it was super cold! So we went back inside for warmth.

I hope you enjoyed Christmas and received some neat-o gifts. You deserve them!

Sushiboy, first let me say I almost keeled over when I saw you had posted on your blog. What a shocker. :) The children are so cute in their winter gear.

Second, if only the police could tow the car to the Bahamas or Bermuda. Might as well make all the verbal abuse of citizens worth it. I could use a few days on a beach. Instead they tow it to a big yard with high chain-link fences and several German shepherds prowling. Mean.

This is Central Park, officer? Oops. Isn't this north New Jersey?
