The same morning as below, waiting for my son to come out of Kumon. I noticed a squat street-cleaner snap into the parking lot, looking like it was designed by Terry Gilliam. Out jumps a guy in a jump suit who begins to scuttle about the lot picking up small branches with an extendo-grabber-thingy, like his life depended on it. If I ever needed an open space cleaned, this is the man to get it done. It snowed about 6 inches later that day.
