If you saw my previous Long Winter post, here’s a picture from today. The trees have been blooming just a few days, and I hope you can see the leaves already appearing, as opposed to it being almost two weeks of bloom in 2010. This is the most extreme behaviour in the fifteen years I’ve lived here. You can see the leaves on the top of the right-hand tree.
Here’s what it looked like in 2010, before the assholes butchered the trees last year. The town has really fallen down on keeping things going well in the past few years. They only plow some parts of the sidewalks on some streets, and none at all on others. They have always plowed the sidewalks well until about five years ago. It’s very disappointing to see them just let things go, and to allow highway department employees who haven’t a clue what they are doing to butcher trees. Yes, I am still angry about it. Jerks.
