From anonymous NorthIowaToday.com reader:
This is what happened to me this morning while I was coming to work:
I was at the stop sign by Dollar General and The Manor, on Federal Avenue heading north. As I was approaching the stop sign I see a city dump truck parked at an angle by the stop sign, then a bull dozer, scooping the snow that they put in the middle of the road and then putting it in the truck. The time is about 5 min to 8 a.m. The usual time people are heading to work. I can’t get around the truck on either direction due to how he was parked and the snow in the middle of the road. I have a person in a minivan behind me honking her horn. Im like “lady, I can’t go!” I sit there for 5 min waiting. The guy sitting in the bull dozer thing is laughing the whole time. Finally the truck is full of snow and makes to leave. I am slowing pulling towards the stop sign and here comes the flipping other guy… I see him smiling, he thinks it’s funny. Finally got on my way so I could be to work on time.
What I don’t understand is why the hell the city is having them scoop the snow @ a peak time of the morning when most people need to get to work. If they would have just scooped the whole thing the first time, they would have to go back and interrupt people’s work commute. I just thought it was asinine and then the fact that the guys scooping up the snow thought it was funny.
