AKA “Don’t come a-visitin’ just yet.” It reeks around here!
Either something isn’t draining, or–more likely–the streetsweeper service is ignoring our street, because there is a lot more than the usual dead leaves, bits o’ litter and dirty water in the gutters these days. There’s green lumpy algae, scummy green bubblicious soup, and just plain old green pond scum. In some places it’s at least two inches thick.
Sure, those of us with the worst of it could push it out onto the street with a broom. But that’s a temporary solution if there is no streetsweeper.
So…I have emailed Public Works to see what the hey is going on.
It’s hard to miss the irony of being in a place where they tell people not to let standing water stand and turn green, yet the gutters are allowed to become the breeding grounds for the Mutant Children of Godzilla Vs. the Smog Monster and the Swamp Thing.
