This is really too much. Montclair Town Manager Joseph Hartnett has emailed Baristanet this explanation as to why the town's post-storm clean-up effort sucked so badly. It boils down to something like this:
-- Even though the storm arrived exactly as forecast and evolved precisely as predicted, conditions were unpredictable and "tricky."
-- Every significant road running through the town is a county road and therefore not the town's responsibility.
-- But we've done such a good job in the past!
