Whew!

I was a little, uh, concerned today, because the garbage on my street hadn't been picked up by noon. There has been a battle raging in Albany over the New York state budget, local governments have had to adopt austerity budgets as a result (the state Office of Parks, Recreation,and Historic Preservation has closed numerous sites statewide,and most municipalities have cut library hours drastically- just the cuts that need to be made for a public that has less money to spend on entertainment). Well, when I saw that the garbage hadn't been collected today, I feared the worst. The prospect of the neighborhood's garbage sitting out in the hot sun for a long weekend would have been horrifying.

Thankfully, the good people of the Yonkers' DPW made their rounds soon after noon.

Garbage is still sitting at the curb on all of Crescent Place.

That's not good- my neighbors around the corner did not have their garbage picked up.
