Philthy Paul here,
Im pretty sure we have hit record snowfall here in Philadelphia. I recently moved into Center City and today I armed myself with my trustly compact-able shovel and a car tool and set off into the night. I encountered many stranded vehicles which i helped out, a cbs news crew, and many downed trees… The streets had minimal traffic, with your occasional taxi or PGW truck with plow. The only businesses that were open were bars and a few restaurants. PARC was open serving high society onlooking the penn students having a snowball fight in rittenhouse park. Mayor Nutter has declared that all government operations closed thursday ( and i believe friday as well ). Everyone that i saw in the streets were holding plastic cups of alcohol. This is truly a state of emergency. The PPA rakes in millions of dollars yet there is no snow removal services in the city. I helped out a Philadelphia police car stuck in the snow while uncovering my bm-dubew.. My roommate mike is a city firefighter. I called him and they have been out on assistance calls all night. They were even called to a house that collapsed on itself. Where are the plows? Trees are collapsing from all of the snow falling.
Here is a picture feed of my exploits tonight:
