Tale of Two Snowplows
The Land of Ice & Snow
Mayor Bill de Blasio today defended his administration’s snow-clearing efforts, brushing aside allegations that plows skipped the Upper East Side in an act of political revenge.
“They’re just mistaken. No one was treated differently. We believe in a five-bough approach in everything we do,” he told reporters, taking questions during a storm briefing at a Brooklyn firehouse.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg says today’s snowstorm won’t be as bad as the epic “Snowpocalypse” of 2010.
“We don’t think that people are going to be that inconvenienced,” the mayor said in a radio interview with John Gambling this morning.
Though he didn’t give any dire warnings about the storm, Mayor Bloomberg did have some advice about helping your neighbors survive the wintry weather.
