Everyone is getting ready for the imminent snowstorm this week, which could dump nearly two feet of snow on New York City. Whole Foods is notoriously elbow-to-elbow busy with doomsday shoppers. Down at the Department of Sanitation silo of salt, preparations are underway to ensure supply is ample.
Caught this lone bulldozer sitting atop an enormous mound of minerals yesterday afternoon. Engine was running, lights on, but driver asleep at the wheel. Maybe just a quick disco nap before the real party in a just a few hours?
Meanwhile, New York Times reported the following on Sanitation efforts for the storm:
To prepare, [Mayor de Blasio] said, the Sanitation Department has scheduled 12-hour shifts, with 2,400 employees on each shift, working from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Nearly 500 salt spreaders will go out before the snow. After two inches of snow have fallen, the city will deploy plows to clear about 6,000 miles of road. The sanitation commissioner, Kathryn Garcia, said that 2,000 plows from her agency would be available, along with 242 from other agencies.
