Cinders

March 6, 2010 - Heather Ziegler

  Now that the snow is melting, all those gritty black cinders are more evident than ever. In fact, for walkers and runners, they are down right dangerous. Has anyone tried to walk down Chicken Neck Hill or run across the Bridge Street bridge in Elm Grove? I have seen plenty of track teams on the run as of late and I wonder how many may have taken a spill on the cinders. It would be nice if a street sweeper could clean the sidewalk along Chicken Neck Hill. As for the sidewalks on the bridges, I guess we will have to wait for Mother Nature to rain them away. I would be happy to sweep up the cinders in front of my house, deposit them in a bucket for reuse by the state road. But they would have to come and get them because I would not be able to lift the bucket when it's full. Perhaps I should hold onto that bucket at least until April as the Farmer's Almanac is talking more snow for March. Let us hope those old farmers are dead wrong.
