Funny Newsreel: "Forever Known As The Storm Of ...'47"

Take a look at this newsreel taken in 1947 after a major snowfall here in New York City. It sounds way too familiar...

By the way, my street has still not been plowed. How about yours?

It's 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, and the snow plow finally arrived on our street: Luquer between Clinton and Court.

Wow, three days later. That must be a record in the city. Still waiting here on my block.
By the way, has anyone gotten mail?

10am on Wednesday.. no plow & no mail yet on Union (between Court & Smith st.) on what 'used to be' a bus-route, and now not even an NYPD route?

No word from our Public Advocate either? or absentee Councilmen? Not a political creature is stirring, not even a tweet...?
