How Do You Rate Attleboro's Storm Recovery Effort?
Some are praising the work, others have less-than-kind words to say.
We are nearly two full days removed from the winter storm (tentatively known as the Blizzard of '13, we're not going to use that fish name), but the cleanup effort is not finished. Although there are several features of the recovery, the one that gets the most attention is snowplowing. Residents' opinions on how that is going, at least of those who post on Attleboro Patch's comments section and Facebook page, are mostly negative, although there are some defenders.
"Pretty sad surrounding towns where residents pay much lower tax rates have impeccable roads," wrote Jen Crowder on Patch's Facebook page. "'Epic fail' is too nice to say about Attleboro's response."

Derek Piette wrote, "The streets definitely need to be improved. The side streets in our area are only wide enough for one car to pass. I'm sure mail delivery won't happen because of this."
Katja Chmielnik Campbell has an opposing view.
"Nice! Good job!" Campbell wrote. "And the plow drivers were working hard. I appreciated every moved snowflake. Job well done plow drivers!"
Campbell didn’t have many allies on Patch's Facebook page. There were more people who had good things to say on this website's comments section, where anonymity reigns.
"Attleboro people should be thanking these hard-working city workers and contractors for all their hours and hard work," wrote a person who says her name is Susan. "Get the map out and take a look at how many streets there are ... never mind it was a BLIZZARD!!!!!"
So, what do you think? How has the snowplowing been in your neighborhood?
