Via Philly.com, some dude on Saturday night (you know, when it was still blizzarding) decided to throw an old mattress under his wheels
for traction to set multiple cars on fire:
So yeah, that did not go well. While some streets have 3-4 feet of snow in them with nowhere to put this much snow, others apparently have burned-out cars to contend with.
Also of note, because Philly, “a man ... leaned out from a second-story window Sunday to complain that the street had not been touched by a city plow.” Of course he did. I imagine it started with “AY YO ARE YOU THE INQUIRER?!” (pronounced “inkwire”)
Meanwhile, the PPD is just trolling the shit out of space-savers,
...which will likely be a hilarious crisis in the coming weeks. If you don’t know what space-saving is, its the proud tradition of using household items to claim a shoveled out parking spot, as explained by this mildly racist video:
As a result of all this chaos associated with street parking(and the risk of getting plowed/crashed into), I left my car at my parents in the suburbs all weekend, and shoveled it out when i got a ride home (because the train was/is still not running) yesterday.
It was admittedly very bizarre walking the empty streets of center city during the storm Saturday, but also very awesome.
I hope Doug has a good garage.
