Problem Spots: Whiteface II Passable

Giving credit where it is due: yesterday someone cut through the five-foot high snow pile blocking the sidewalk near 62 Miller Street. The photo below shows a view looking north. As you can see, the rest of the sidewalk beyond the pile is still a mess down to the railroad crossing. So who is responsible for this stretch? The railroad or the billboard company?

But at least with the pass open in Whiteface Mountain II, someone can at least stay off the street, albeit the pedestrian still has to trudge through the rough section. Not recommended for anyone with physical limitations, especially an older person concerned about falling.

Asked for a comment about the new passageway through Whiteface II, Plattsy The Clown sez:

“Hurray! Now I can rescue the Donner Party!”

Maybe they will have Plattsy for dinner when he gets there.

Again, right on, luke. The unshoveled sidewalk has been a pet peeve of mine for years. I do alot of walking in the winter (and biking) and there are many scofflaws when it comes to keeping sidewalks clear. As well, the P.W. dept' contributes by not cleaning out curb cuts when it plows the street blocking the curb cuts w/ cement-like snow piles.
