Somebody got the snow shovel out

Early last month, we pointed out that if you walked along the east side of Canal Street just west of Wolf Point after a snowfall, you might be buttonholed by a constituent of Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd) who wanted the alderman to make sure the sidewalk was cleared of snow.

Up until that time, the sidewalk, which ran alongside a parking lot, was never shoveled. You can see its usual appearance in the photo at upper left.

Since then, there have been three major snowfalls. And each time, the walk has been cleared (on Feb. 27, it kept snowing after it was plowed).
