How Would You Rate Boston’s Plowing During The Nor'easter?

Was the City's effort up to snuff in the snow and bitter cold?

Now that this winter’s first snowstorm is in the books, it’s time for you to rate how the City of Boston’s plows handled the more than half foot of snow that fell Thursday through Friday.

Feel free to give praise or thanks, express frustrations or offer up photos and/or  constructive criticism (don't even think about using ALL CAPS in your remarks) in the comments below.

Tom M's last storm as Mayor was handled beautifully. Thanks Tom for all you've done for us.

We still need to find a way to get the bus stops cleared (the T is not doing it!). If the city wants us to use the buses Vs. cars they need to focus some effort here so people can wait at the stops and board the buses without slipping and sliding over piles of snow to even get to the bus!

Dan, Since the bus stops are along areas of the city that residents are responsible for clearing (e.g. sidewalks), then I think that perhaps it is the civic duty of those residents to shovel a path to the street as well, and that includes bus stops (unless it is in writing somewhere that sidewalk areas with bus stops are in fact the responsibility of the MBTA as far as snow removal goes).

Matthew, It's not the shoveling of a pathway here, it's a large area for people to stand in waiting for a bus. Then there is the snow piles between the sidewalk and the street one has to climb over. This is not something the abutting owner should not be responsible. The T is tasked on clearing the stop area which they are not doing.
