My city has done a great job clearing the main roads, but a lot of the side streets are complete shitshows of rutted ice and snow, with ice platforms two inches thick making things bumpy to drive on & treacherous to walk on. I still see cars getting stuck on ice patches when trying to go uphill.
The sidewalks are worse. In some places, they are bone dry and clear, but in others, people have not shoveled at all since the blizzard (now two weeks ago), and the snow's been packed down. Lots only have narrow pass-throughs, and lots of people haven't tended to their sidewalk corners at all. For example, the sidewalk corner I enter just after a busy street on my way to the bus stop every morning is a small mountain of snow.
Last night when returning from spending New Year's Eve with two of our friends, a drunk guy with no coat on said to me and my boyfriend, "Catch me if I fall!" as he scrambled up while we were scrambling down, lol.
I'm actually looking forward to returning to work tomorrow.
I've consumed a fair amount of media these last two weeks, and seen family and friends, and those parts have been lovely.
I like structure & routines, though, so I'll be glad to go back to work, at least for the first day!
