Snowstorm frustrations

Traveling from Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola down Old Country Road on Jan. 24, long after the snow had stopped falling, I found it strange that Nassau County workers were not yet clearing the sidewalks and crosswalk accesses in front of the court and the clerk buildings [“Buried,” News, Jan. 24].

I figured that when I arrived to work at the county courthouse on Monday, Jan. 25, the sidewalks and the crosswalks would be shoveled, and Old Country Road would be accessible from either north or south.

Instead, I found the sidewalks and crosswalks impassable. I’ve never seen such dangerous and disgraceful conditions before in the county seat of Nassau, one of the most prosperous and highly taxed in the nation.

Like everyone else, we spent the Jan. 23 weekend clearing our driveway. Then a town truck came down our street and plowed snow back onto our driveway and in front of the mailbox!

Is that really necessary?

We don’t ask that our driveways be cleared; we ask that the plowers not box us and our mailbox back in.
