Those guys and women earned their keep today by manning just about every traffic signal in the city. A storm ripped through which I underestimated and took down trees everywhere. When trees go down, so do the power grids.
Anyhow, they had to not only direct traffic, but they seem to have thought through the traffic patterns and coned off lanes that led to more gridlock. I thought they chose smartly. They earned the speeding ticket for which I have yet to pay. Well done.
