I couldn't agree more with Frank Diventi ("Once again, the county beats the city on snow removal," Jan. 30). I, too, live in Northeast Baltimore, about a fifth of a mile from the county line. It has now been four days since the storm and still no city plow. Had it not been for a good samaritan neighbor with a small plow, we would still be snow-bound.
There have been many ocassions when all the neighbors got out and shoveled the street, something I can no longer do since I now have a heart condition. It's been like this for the entire 20 years I've lived here. What really irks me is when we have about 1/4-inch of snow, they come with a ton of salt, dumping piles of it in the street, but when we really need them, they never come.
