A reader writes in with a good observation (and a photo!):
Why are plow trucks driving all around the city with their plows up?!?! They drove by our house 7-10 times last night, each time doing no actual plowing. While going to Lowe’s, we’ve seen several other city plows, again, plows up off the ground. Also, interestingly, Broad St. through the Fan is slushy & snow covered, but the second you cross Boulevard going west, it’s plowed and clear!
