This is a great lesson, and I give it my cheers and applause.

Snow removal in Pittsburgh

People in Pittsburgh have been complaining that the city hasn’t been removing the snow fast enough. I think those complaints are whiny and spoiled. This is the most snow that the city has ever had in one month ever. The people who remove the snow are only human – they can’t just cross their arms and blink their eyes and make the snow disappear.
