she should be happy they at least plow. where i live they plow about 4 feet into the road from the curb, and about half of the people on my street are elderly.
As one who lives in a subdivision, I sympathize.
You shovel the driveway, then they plow and you have to shovel the foot all over again!
That bridge appears in the next strip, too. Is this a specific location in Minneapolis?
Well, it’s an arch bridge with narrow arches, and the shading patterns look unlike concrete, so the allmighty Google suggests it’s the Stone Arch Bridge. I can’t replicate the buildings very well – best of a bad lot is the river side of the Mill City Museum: some of its architectural themes match pretty well.
There are a few other arch bridges available. Perspective could narrow the arches of the modern bridges and the shading is not definitive. However, the fits to the comic backgrounds are worse – too many trees, no / wrong kind of buildings, etc.
I used to walk a half a mile to school and back when I was in middle school, and for the most part both the streets and the sidewalks were pretty okay. But the effing CORNERS. It was like everyone dumped their snow there, and I couldn’t get to the street because the plow pushed all the snow there, so every time I crossed the street I had to climb a mountain of snow, and then when I got to the OTHER side of the street, I’d have to climb ANOTHER ONE. I did this for three winters in a row.
… It’s almost 2016 now. You’d be what, 25, 26 now?
In that time, have you by any chance, become a homeowner who can be fined a lot of money if they don’t clear the sidewalks in front of their homes (possibly two sidewalks if they have a corner lot). That’s kind of the final kick in the teeth, isn’t it? You shovel the sidewalk like a responsible home owner, the city fills it in again, and then fines you for the sidewalk not being clear.
How does that kind of frustration rate against having to climb over a couple snowbanks?
